Default Avoiding page breaks in paragraphs

Hi!

I have a outline-structured document (using 1 Header, 1.1 Subheader etc.).
On the third and fourth level, I have a lot of information in rather small
bits, i.e. text under a single (sub-)header is seldom more than two rather
short paragraphs. How can I keep page breaks from occurring in or between
these paragraphs?

(in the example below, there would never be a page break inserted in the
section)

---- start of section

1.1 Subheader

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Proin faucibus
tristique metus. Proin et velit in odio porta aliquet. Quisque auctor,
ligula eu vulputate condimentum, ante orci auctor nunc, in vehicula erat
sapien eget sem.

Aliquam fringilla lorem nec velit. Aenean fermentum felis hendrerit ipsum.
Morbi convallis wisi at odio. Nunc mauris. Maecenas semper, justo et
vestibulum laoreet, enim turpis varius sem, ut malesuada lorem erat nec
purus.

---- end of section


Any ideas?

Thanks!

Default

On the Line and Page Breaks tab of Format | Paragraph are the two controls
you need:

1. "Keep with next" will keep a paragraph with the following one. Headings
1-4 have this formatting by default, which is one good reason for using
them; see
http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/numb...ingStyles.html.

2. "Keep lines together" will prevent a paragraph from breaking in the
middle. If you have "Widow/orphan control" enabled (as it is by default), no
paragraph shorter than four lines will break, anyway, so this should suffice
for short paragraphs.

Use "Keep with next" sparingly and judiciously (especially in combination
with "Keep lines together"); if it gets applied to too many paragraphs (more
than will fit on a page) then Word will use a lot of its resources chasing
its tail.
