- You can also check the “Keep Lines Together” and “Keep with Next” options in the Line and Paragraph Spacing menu. This will help keep paragraphs together across page breaks.
- Consider adjusting your page margins or font size to fit more text per page. This will reduce the chance of single lines appearing at the top or bottom.
- As a last resort, you may need to manually adjust paragraph breaks or add hard page breaks to control where widows/orphans appear.
So in summary, while you can’t completely disable widow/orphan control in Google Docs, you can minimize its effects through careful formatting of paragraphs, lines, and pages. The key is keeping related text together and making slight adjustments to fit more content per page.
