I was having trouble with Microsoft Word 2016. I wanted to have no jagged sides, so I fixed it to do that. But now there are unusually large spaces between words. I tried to do I forced space like I did in Windows 8 but it didn't work. Any suggestions for Windows 10 forced spaces?

 

Thanks!

When you justify paragraphs, MS Word will equalize the spacing between words that are on the same line.  If you think about, this is the only way your paragraphs can end up being aligned to both the left and right margins.  Obviously, there are times when this can result in large unsightly spaces.  The only way to avoid these unsightly spaces is to hyphenate some words.  I don't use MS Office, but there should be a setting somewhere that will apply hyphenation for you automatically.  You can check to see if this setting is on.  Also, it's possible that "hyphenation" dictionaries may be available for you to install to help with this.

When you say a "forced space" do you mean a non-breaking space? You should be able to insert one using ctrl+shift+space.


The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

I think she is referring to paragraph justification.  She wants text to be aligned to both the right and left margins hence the reference to "no jagged sides".
