Where is the formating for WIDOW/ORPHAN on Word 2010?

Question by:miamiLAW

    Accepted Solution

    Hopefully, 2010 is the same as 2007, where you have to click the tiny arrow in the bottom right-hand corner of the Paragraph group on the Home tab of the Ribbon. This brings up the Paragraph format dialogue. Widow/Orphan control is on the Line and Page Breaks tab.

    The same dialogue can be reached when modifying a style, which is the preferred approach.

    The methods described by GrahamSkan still apply in 2010. You can also right-click anywhere in a paragraph and select "Paragraph" from the context menu to open the format dialog.
