Hi All,

Well this turned out to not be specific to Word 2007, just the tool I'm using.

Since we are using a column layout, and each column must end on the same line, I've solved my justification problem as follows:

1. Manual hyphenation only.
2. Using column breaks to even up the columns, with judicious use of additional/less pixels at the end of preceding paragraphs.

One thing I"ve noticed, trying to add/remove pixels before a paragraph does not seem to change anything, only if I do so below the paragraph. Don't know why. Anyway, the Editor-in-Chief for the journal is very pleased with what he is seeing so I guess I'm on the right track.

Once I get into the work, they are open to me evaluating other tools for designing the journal. Am not sure yet.. (though the more I work with Word 2007 the more I am back to where I was over 15 years ago (I HATE WORD!)). Back then a kind lady spent an hour teaching me about field codes and I gained a deeper appreciation for Word's potential... now I'm back to square one.

But the justification issue is solved!

Deborah
