    Irritating Word 2007 Issue

    One school i work at is running a trial where students buy their own laptops. One student has brought hers in due to having an issue in Word 2007. Its probably a really simple thing to fix, but i can't find the solution.

    When she types text, its not keeping words together when they reach the end of the line, rather splitting words as she types. There has to be a setting for it somewhere, but after 20mins seaching Word's help files, can't find anything

    In Word 2003/2007 it's known as Justify from what you're describing.

    Take a look here remove automatic hyphenation
    near the bottom of the page. I think thats what you mean

    Well you know how when you are typing in word (or most programs actually), normally you get to the end of the margin and if the word doesn't fit on that line the whole word drops down to the next line... instead, whats happening is the characters that don't fit are dropping down to the next line, if its in the middle of a word or not...

    it does the same thing no matter if the text is aligned left/centre/right or justified... and its not actually hyphenating the words when it splits them... (thanks Michael and Rush_Tech for the suggestions tho)

    There are approximately 90 machines the same, running the same image... and she is the only one having the problem... i've been using Office 2k7 on my home pc and work laptop for a while now and haven't seen this problem before either...

    She might have changed something. I would just re-image the machine so its at a state that you know it works.

    Confusingly enough, it seemed to be specific to one document... and on top of that specific to the text that was there.... when copying it from word to notepad, it wasn't identifying the characters properly... retyped it out and pasted it back into the document and that seemed to fix it

    does this happen in a new text document, mabye she has altered the normal.dot template and altered any margin settings.
    If this doesnt happen in a new docuement, copy all the text into a new word docuement, you might have to alter the text style so it does not copy any of the formatting over.
    We have some kids here that have a similar problem and i have always been able to rectify by pasting in a new doc.
