I want to add a non-breaking space between two words in a text block so the words always stay on the same line.

You can use the standard keyboard shortcut to add a non-breaking space within a Text Block.

On a Mac this is Option+Spacebar. On a Windows computer, I believe it's usually Ctrl+Shift+Spacebar.

Hi Paul, 

I am also trying to add non break space within a text block, but when I use the keyboard shortcut of option+spacebar, nothing seems to change. Is there another shortcut or way to troubleshoot this?


Thank you!

A tip for Windows users.

I couldn't get the ctrl + shift + space to work in 7.1.
But I did find a trick that works.
Hold down alt, enter 255 on the keypad, release alt.

It's not the friendliest shortcut, and you need have a keypad, but it works.
