keep lines together

Always use with headings

Keep lines together ensures that all lines in a para­graph appear on the same page. If the last line of the para­graph won’t fit on the cur­rent page, the whole para­graph gets moved to the next page.

Use this option with headings to pre­vent them from start­ing at the bot­tom of one page and con­tin­u­ing at the top of the next. That looks bad.

Like widow and orphan control, keep­ing lines together will cre­ate gaps at the bot­tom of pages. But unlike widow and orphan con­trol, you only want to keep lines together in spe­cial sit­u­a­tions, not as part of your default text for­mat­ting.
