Widows and orphans

Postby meho_r » Fri Aug 24, 2007 11:49 am

Though LaTeX does control widows and orphans automatically, its mechanism doesn't work in every case. Does anyone knows how to take manual control of these two when need be? (I'm just tired of \enlargethispage, \\ and similar commands trying to fix a line that shouldn't be on the next page)

Thanks

Try some commands in your preamble.
  1. \clubpenalty10000
  2. \widowpenalty10000

Thanks a lot Very Happy It did the trick Wink BTW, some people say that it isn't wise to set widow/clubpenalty value above 1000-2000. Why is that? The fact is that only at 10000 it works.
