I want to apply widow/orphan control to an entire document at once, and not just paragraph by paragraph. I went into the paragraph dialog box, Lind and Page Breaks tab, checked the widow/orphan control check box, chose Set as Default button and chose This document only the clicked OK, but it did not apply it to the entire document.
