    How to automatically prevent Widows/Orphans in InDesign

    BlueFunk74 Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I constantly create multi-languaged leaflets within InDesign CS5 and the one thing I often find is that I constantly have to revisit the entire document to prevent widows (or orphans - whatever you call them) at the end of a paragraph.

       

      Is there a way to setup within my paragraph style to prevent, lets say, anything less then 10 characters at the end of the paragraph?

       

      I am aware of using the White-Space non break command, but the amount of text I have to visit I wondered if it could be setup in the first instance and prevent widows appearing at the end of a paragraph.

       

      Thanks for taking the time to read
