Word Tip: Nonbreaking Spaces Really Work

Nonbreaking spaces in Word offer a dependable way to ensure your document doesn't contain unsightly or confusing text break.

For example, when you enter a date such as December 15, 2000, you want to make sure Word doesn't place December and 15 on different lines. At the same time, you don't want Word to break the line between a person's first name and middle initial.

To enter a nonbreaking space, just press Control, Shift and Spacebar. In contrast to the dots that Word uses to denote normal spaces in Show mode, Word shows a nonbreaking space with a degree symbol.
