Preventing Straggling Heads in Microsoft Word

There are certain paragraphs that naturally belong with another paragraph. For instance, section headings belong with the paragraphs that follow them, a signature line belongs with the explanation line that may be after it, and a figure belongs with the caption that may follow it. Word makes it easy to keep certain paragraph pairings together. To format paragraphs so they stay together, use the following steps:

1. Position the insertion point in the first paragraph of the pair you want to keep together.

2. Make sure the Home of the ribbon is displayed.

3. Click the small icon at the bottom-right of the Paragraph group. Word displays the Paragraph dialog box.
