As you are working on your table for the Analysis project, you may find yourself in the situation where a row of information breaks onto two pages. Today’s #Watch post explains how to take care of that problem. All you need to do is change a checkbox in Word to keep rows of information together.
This Auburn University Writing Center video demonstrates how to change that setting in Microsoft Word for Mac. The process for Windows is similar, so it’s still worth watching the video if you’re a Windows person.
If you use Windows, use the instructions from Microsoft to make the change.

I thought this was a really helpful tip! I never knew you could change the settings in word to control page breaks for a table. I’ll definitely be utilizing this tip from now on!
Wow! I never knew you were able to keep rows together like this. I have some page break occurrences in my table right now, so I’ll definitely go back and apply this fix.
Preventing rows from splitting up is a great way to keep the focus of the document. What I really want to know is why Microsoft would make the table split option a default.Regardless of their reasoning, it is easy to fix.
It is dumb that it’s not the default. Who knows what their thinking was.
