    I would like to apologize for any inconvenience but, as much as we want to help you, we may need to clarify your concern first. To my understanding, you are referring to the underlined format of the words "widows and orphans, is that correct? If not, kindly explain the details of your concern more so we may further assist you. Thank you.

    i would like to know if i can make sure there are no widows and orphans - meaning paragraphs straying into another new page but rather i would like each section to stay neat on one page. New headings and paragraphs will start on a new page.

    And then once i change it into PDF it will look neat; paragraph with paragrah on each page.

    Unfortunately the pdf generated form does not have much edit-ability available for the end user.

    I would recommend downloading a copy of the generated PDF form and editing it in a third party tool

    You can use tools such as http://www.pdfforge.org/(free)
