In this course, author Alicia Katz Pollock shares the keyboard shortcuts, workflows, and commands that can transform the casual Word 2010 user into a pro. This course covers helpful and lesser-known techniques for making document navigation, content creation, formatting, layout, working with data, graphics integration, and publishing easier. Alicia also includes her favorite top 10 formatting tips in Word, from clearing existing formatting to inserting lines and creating abbreviations with AutoCorrect.
Non-breaking spaces look like normal spaces between words, but they prevent a phrase from splitting in the middle. This is great for company names, or words that you want to keep on the same line no matter what. Non-breaking hyphens work the same way, but the hyphenated word won't split in the middle. This is the perfect solution for people with hyphenated names. Let's start by turning on the Show/Hide paragraph mark so we can see what's happening behind-the-scenes. I am going to highlight the space between Two and Trees, and I am going to do a Ctrl+Shift+Spacebar, and instantly, two things happen; the word Two rolls around to the next line, because it's now in Non-breaking space.
I can also see a little circle here, instead of the dot used for spaces. For consistency sake, I'll do the same thing between all the words in the title; Shift+Ctrl+Space. That way, if my formatting changes later, Two Trees Olive Oil will always stay on the same line. Hyphens work the same way. I'll highlight the hyphen here between Katz and Pollock and I'll do a Ctrl+Shift+Dash, so now Katz and Pollock will never get separated by a word wrap. Replacing spaces and hyphens with their non-breaking equivalent helps you prevent names and phrases from breaking across rows, keeping the text together no matter what.
