Widows & Orphans

In typesetting, widows and orphans are lines at the beginning or end of a paragraph, which are left dangling at the top or bottom of a column, separated from the rest of the paragraph. There's a lot of dispute as to which text line is called the widow, and which is the orphan so in this example we'll just call the one at the end of a paragraph the widow, and the one at the beginning an orphan:

We've introduced a new text feature which keeps these lines together when a paragraph spills over multiple pages or text columns. This can be found on the advanced text options bar under paragraph settings:

This feature is available from Version 16 onwards
