What is the standard for orphan lines/words of text, in paperback & Kindle



  • Ann R Shannon

    ebook. not kindle.

  • Sarah Holroyd

    Kindle is ebook.

    When viewing such an area of the ebook file, change the size of the text and you'll see that the problem may go away. In a reflowable ebook, the user controls the size of the type, so there isn't any way at all to eliminate widows and orphans.

    Print is a different matter, and in most cases widows/orphans should be avoided.

    thank you, Sarah!
