I do I keep four lines of text together in a WORD document.  I am using three columns.  I want the four lines to stay together when there is a change in column and/or a page break.

In Word 2007/2010:

Select those four lines (in the unmerged document). On the Home ribbon, click the small arrow at the bottom right corner of the Paragraph section.

Go to the Line and Page Breaks tab, and check off Keep Lines Together.
