Considering that this bug is open for over 5 years and according to the roadmap will not be fixed within the next 2 years, maybe it would be best to just remove the functionality from the UI.

This seems to be broken still... (testing using current 1.5.9+svn)

after having read,4813.msg22219.html

i wanted to open a new ticket but then thought it might be good to do a quick search before.

Just tried with v1.6.1 in 2024

The "keep together paragraph", the "keep with next", the "widows/orphans" does not seem to work to prevent ugly column breaks.

This "not-feature" seems quite long standing. It is well past 10th aniversary.
