doNotExpandShiftReturn (Don't Justify Lines Ending in Soft Line Break)

This element specifies whether applications should fully justify the contents of incomplete lines which end in a soft line break when the parent paragraph is fully justified using the jc element (§

Typically, applications shall fully justify all lines in a paragraph when that setting is specified using the jc element except for the last line in the paragraph (the line ending with the paragraph mark). This element, when present with a val attribute value of true (or equivalent), specifies that any line which ends in a soft line break shall also not be fully justified when the paragraph specifies that setting.

[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document with a paragraph whose first single line consists of East Asian characters followed by a soft paragraph mark. The default presentation would have the contents of that line fully justified:

However, if this compatibility setting is turned on:

  <w:doNotExpandShiftReturn />

Then this line is not fully justified, as it ends with a soft line break, resulting in the following output:

end example]
