I know one can use the Keep feature to prevent widows and orphans in Indesign but I have a slightly related issue that seems to defy this workaround. I have two paragraphs as below:

Word (paragraph 1)
Synonyms, meanings (paragraph 2)

Both paragraphs are single line texts with different paragraph styles applied to them.

I need to ensure both paragraphs stick together in case they happen to straddle a page break. Is there any way to ensure this in Indesign?


In the paragraph style Keep Options for "Word" (you are using paragraph styles, right?) use "Keep with next" and give a value of one line. Anywhere this paragraph style appears, it will not permit the following paragraph to flow to the next column or page.
