How To Justify the Last Line of a Justified Paragraph
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c, 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c
When using the jusified paragraph formatting, Word for Windows is designed to justify all the lines in the paragraph except the last line. Similiarly, Word will not justify a single line paragraph. This article describes a workaround you can use to justify the last line of a justified paragraph or to justify a single line paragraph.
At the end of the paragraph, insert a newline character by pressing SHIFT+ENTER. Do not delete the existing paragraph mark.
Note: If the addition of a newline character produces too much line space after the paragraph, you can adjust one of the following settings:
- Decrease the Space After setting for the paragraph that contains the newline character.
- Decrease the Line Spacing setting for the blank paragraph (if one exists) between paragraphs.
- Decrease the Space Before setting for the next paragraph.
