    Help! I can't justify the last line of text! (Word XP (2002))

    I have a 3-page document... In the last paragraph on the last page of the document, the last line of text in that paragraph will not full justify. There is a hard-return at the end of that line... I can do nothing to make it justify so that it lines up with the rest of the lines of text w/in the document. Help!

    Probably a silly statement, but let me make it!
    Justify only works if the text runs fully across the line. If you enter half way through the line the justify will act like a left align. If the text does not run completely across the line, justify has no effect.

    I have Word 2000, but I've never noticed the last line of any paragraph justifying. You can expand it by doing a Shift+Enter if you have Tools/Options/Compatibility/"Don't espand character spaces on the line ending Shift-Return" UNchecked. But, boy, it's going to look strange.

    Hi -

    This may help: Press Shift + Enter (not Enter alone) at the end of an already justified para (creates a new line).

    Good luck,
    Curious
