How do I get text/words on a page to flow into the next line, mid-word without Pages (Mac) automatically justifying?

This question seems to be off-topic here. Try searching over on the Apple SE. –  ckpepper02 Jan 14 at 15:34
    
Is this program specific in any way? InDesign? Illustrator... Photoshop...? –  Phlume Jan 14 at 15:53

Apple's Pages is a hybrid between text processor and page layout app. So, I don't think it should be shunned here just because it's not Adobe… –  TehMacDawg Jan 14 at 16:10
    
It's true, however, that Pages questions are far more frequent over at the Apple.Stackexchange. –  TehMacDawg Jan 14 at 16:58

This is actually a generic software-agnostic design question masquerading as a question about Pages, though I find some of the wording vaguely redundant. –  horatio Jan 14 at 17:19

Insert a line break (also known as 'soft return') by pressing Ctrl+Return or Shift+Return. Different from a paragraph break (Return key alone) or a column break, the line break doesn't end the current paragraph, which has consequences when using paragraph styles or automatic numbering / bullet lists.
