I am making a job in Open Office Writer. When justifying I get paragraphs like this one:


Where " habitan en los Campos Elíseos" looks really bad.

I have tried with condense text option in characters but it doesn't change the text. Any idea how to fix it?

  • Which version of Ubuntu are you running? By the way, I'll notice a response quicker if @L.D.James is included in your response. – L. D. James Jul 15 '17 at 17:13
  • @L.D.James a debian version, but i suppose the problem is the same for both.. – santimirandarp Jul 15 '17 at 17:33
  • I'm fairly fluent with the Ubuntu applications and how their behavior in the Ubuntu environment. I understand that Ubuntu is a derivative of Debian. But I'm not the most fluent with Debian itself. I test my recommendations on all the supported versions of Ubuntu before posting. I don't know the Debian version control and what is current and what is not. If you are using an outdated OS version, that could contribute to issues. – L. D. James Jul 15 '17 at 18:01

It's because you have used Shift + Enter at the end of line to start the new paragraph.
You should start it with just a Enter or if you don't want to use Enter just add a Tab at the end of line.

  • I can't understand your answer, I only wrote in open office without using anything.. – santimirandarp Jul 15 '17 at 18:03
  • Oh, I think I understood now. I will try your solution – santimirandarp Jul 15 '17 at 18:04

    You used the block text format and forced a new line but without ending the paragraph as @Mirza said. So Open Office tries to fill the line – derHugo Jul 15 '17 at 20:28
