Default What is required for "wrap-around-end-of-line feature"?

Hello,



I have to follow the guideline: The text should use the wrap-around-end-of-line feature; i.e., returns at the end of paragraphs only.Place 2 returns after every element such as title, headings, paragraph.

What does that mean? "Place 2 returns.." means place two line breaks?"
What do they mean with wrap-around-end-of-line feature" ?

If someone could help?
Thank you in advance!

Word automatically wraps text, so you shouldn't have an issue with the 'wrap-around-end-of-line feature' part unless you go hitting the <Enter> key at the end of every line. As for the 'Place 2 returns after every element' instruction, that's actually bad practice. What you should do is format the paragraph Styles concerned so their 'space after' setting is equivalent to two lines.

To add to what Paul has said, learn more about the basic rules for typing in Word at the following site:

Agreed, using Word spacing is more efficient. However, I work in a place where I'm mostly revising documents others have created, and they use two manual returns to do paragraph separation. In some fields and companies, that's just the way it's been done and the new hire isn't going to be able to change those up the food chain. They also do two spaces after a period. That was a tough habit to break 20 years ago, and even tougher to un-break for me as a typist.

So I'd advise doing it the way you're told for now, especially if you're new in a position.

By the way, I'd ask to look at sample work or find some in the files. The "wrap around" bit may actually mean justified text?

Remember also that in the Home Ribbon > Paragraph Group > is the Show/Hide command (looks like paragraph symbol). If you open a document that someone else typed, you can see if they actually put two returns at the end.

Editing other people's documents can certainly be a challenge. :-(

Your situation is hardly relevant to the issue at hand; the OP's concern clearly relates to a specification of how documents are to be created, not for how to edit someone else's document.

Accordingly your 'advice' is ill-founded - and will only serve to perpetuate poor practice.
