Justification function versus wide spaces

Apr 24, 2023

I like to format a Word document with the justification function. The previous version of Office 365 had a Compatibility page in Preferences where you could check "Do not widen spaces in a line that ends with Shift + Return (i.e. a soft return). That page no longer exists. Now if I doing a soft return, I get way too wide spaces in a short line (for example, if a soft return does between two enumerations and the second enumeration starts with a multi-word heading).
Does anyone know how I can prevent that?
