Default Is there a way to group text so it stays together?

Hi,

I am editing a document, and it is a pain going through and re-editing page
breaks after making changes to it. If i could simply select a paragraph or
small section that I want to stay together and mark or group it somehow to
stay together so that if it gets pushed down from other text above, it will
stay together, either at the end of a page if it fits, or all of it would be
pushed to the next page. Is there a feature like this?

Thanks,

Alan

Go to the Line and Page Breaks tab of the Format Paragraph dialog and check
the box for "Keep lines together" to keep all of the lines in a paragraph
together and the "Keep with next" to keep one paragraph together with the
next.

Note, everything that you want to keep together must be able to fit on the
one page.
