Summary0015729: Orphans and widows options don’t behave as expected
DescriptionAll Orphans an Widows options (in styles or PP) aren’t applied correctly when using linebreaks frequently. There might be a misunderstanding between breakline an paragraph end.
Steps To Reproduce0. Create 2 linked frames
1. Create a style using "Do not split paragraph" option
2. In a text frame, write a line, breakline, write another, breakline…
3. Apply the style to all of them
4. Reduce the size of the frame containing text and see if the paragraph goes to the next frame (as expected)
Additional InformationSame behavior to be changed for "Don’t separate first", "Don’t separate last", "Keep with next"

i tag it as "minor" impact, but for advanced users, it’s really import to have orphans works consistently, of course

Hello Pygmee, i tested your sample file and it demonstraites issues with orphans and widows.
I see there are some white and yellow backgrounds in your file. Do i understand well that yellow background show "how it should appear" ? (to achieve this yellow correct layout you could not rely on the "orphans / widows" attributes, but you had to change the frame size)
All styles are inline in your same file. Is it the same when those attributes are parts of defined style ?

lo JLuc, you’re right, i should have annotate the sample file. Yellow background is showing the result we expect.
On the left side, i tried to demo some options, they are all inlines but as i experimented the behavior is actually the same with a style (in fact, the option should work the same in both cases)

Another use case for a project i actually layout : you have inline images with a caption below. Setting a style on the image paragraph that say it could be kept with next paragraph don’t work
etc
