Justified text splitting words at end of each line

    Using Word 2003 -
    How can I stop words splitting at the end of lines (not hyphenated, just
    split in half)?? I want the word that doesn't fit on one line to move to the
    next line in its entirety, not just the few letters that don't fit...
    The text is justified, but this has never happened with that format
    before... and I tried re-aligning the text but it still happens... I played
    with the hyphenating function too, but that doesn't seem to be it either...

    This could be a damaged font file, I believe.

    Have you tried with a different font?

    Yes, I tried several different fonts to see if that was it but it didn't
    help... is it possible that it is just a corrupted document?? I have tested
    out every formatting tool I can find and have tried clearing all the
    formatting, but nothing seems to help...

    Corruption is another possibility, yes. Try saving as XML or HTML (under a
    different name) and see if that fixes the problem.

  5. In my experience, this does point to a corrupted document. See
