    Total newbie trying to format text for magazine layout

    tockers

      Hi guys,

       

      Please be gentle with me and do not be afraid to explain things to me in an embarrassingly simple manner!

       

      So, my problem is that I am trying to proof and edit a magazine for print. When I happen across widows, orphans, lines not all snapping to the baseline etc, I am doing what I have previously been taught... to 'soft return'. I thought this would be the best way to tidy up the ragged rights I'm having in my text as well as eliminating all those pesky single words, but whenever I do a SR, the whole page of text scrunches up and messes with the rest of the formatting. It all literally springs up, moving away from the bottom of the text box.

       

      Does anyone have any suggestions? Any would be super appreciated.

       

      Thank you!
