    • Go to Insert-Symbol, special characters. One of them is "nonbreaking space."

    • Another way of inserting a non-breaking space is Ctrl - Shift - Space. This

      does the same thing as using Insert - Symbol, but without taking your hands

      off the keyboard.

      Ctrl - Shift - Hyphen will insert a nonbreaking hyphen if you don't want a

      phrase like 50-gallon tank to have the number on one line and the unit of

      measure on the next.

      I hope this helps.
