# Writer. Keep with next paragraph problem

Hi, the text I'm writing had some unexplainable page interruptions. I thought I could resolve it by unchecking "keep with next paragraph". This solves the problem only until I open the file again (obviously after saving it). And "keep with next paragraph" appears as checked again, too. I searched a lot online and I really don't know how to solve this.

Libre Office version: 4.3.7.2 S.O. Windows 7.

Thank you

This problem drove me crazy.

The reason why you need it saved in .docx is because you're collaborating on the document with other users who are using Word.

The solution is, the other users have to uncheck "keep with next paragraph" too, through Word, or you uncheck it yourself, but on Word, not just on LibreOffice. If they don't uncheck it too though, it might be the case that the problem will reappear.

"Keep with next paragraph" is designed to prevent 'Widows & Orphans" (singles lines from a paragraph at the beginning/end of a page). If you are certain that this is not at play in this case, then you have the characteristic wierd-problem-that-should-not-be-happening-but-which-has-a-single,-simple-fix:-

A corrupt profile can cause such problems. Fortunately, it is easy to fix (and to reverse):

Re-Setting the User Profile:

1. Close down LO/OO + the Quickstarter
3. Rename the folder
4. Restart the program
(this re-creates a default Profile)
5. Restart LO & try again

Anyone is capable of solving this? I had to switch to Microsoft Word!!!

Thank you Alex. I renamed the folder with my user data. When I restarted Libre Office then it appeared as cleaned by my personal settings. Then I opened the file, which initially presented the same interruptions problem. I then unchecked "keep with next paragraph". I saved. When I opened the file again, unfortunately, the problem was there again. I think I should add an important element I forgot to mention: I have to save the file in docx.

Hi

I reproduce your problem on windows 7 & LibreOffice 4.4 (and save to docx)

The workaround is to clear direct formatting (Ctrl+M) of the paragraph instead of simply uncheck keep with next paragraph. Of course this also delete other direct modifications to the style.

Thank you Pierre. I gave your solution a try. But it doesn't work. If there's anyway to upload a file here? I just pasted and copied the first two paragraphs of my file to another file (I changed all the words like "word word" etc...). The new file has the same problem, so it is available for anyone who wants to look at it.
