Justified indentation with forced line break [closed]

asked 2014-04-29 00:50:45 +0200

Hello, I was hoping you might be able to help me with a justification issue. I'm recreating a published report, and I need to put in forced line breaks so that the lines match up, but when I do that, the space at the end of the line ruins the justification. Is there any way to make it so that the justification overrules the spaces at the end of the line such that even though there's a space there, the words will be flush with the right hand edge of the page??

I've discovered it is possible to sort of get around this, by using other formatting characters such as "no-width-no-break" which produce approximately the same result as using SHIFT+ENTER and producing a forced line break.

I found this thread helpful

Thanks for reporting back. I should have mentioned this initially, but was concentrating on working with hard line breaks. Just make sure the "no-width-no-break" character is not Zero width no break space (U+FEFF) as this is deprecated (to be used as a Byte Order Mark only) in place of the Word Joiner (U+2060) for the indicated role.

Not that I know of. The workaround is to highlight the intervening space prior to using SHIFT+ENTER to insert the line feed.

Thanks! Yeah I've considered doing that, but it creates a space at the beginning of the next line instead...
