I have a paragraph format for bulleted "paragraphs". They are actually short items in a sometimes lengthy list. I don't want less than 3 items appearing contiguously because it can be confusing. Is there a way to enforce this? Setting the Keep-with-Next/Previous-Pgf will cause the entire list to be a contiguous set of paragraphs, which would cause too much white space if it can't fit onto the rest of the page. Setting Widow/Orphan-Lines won't keep separate paragraphs together. It seems like I have to customize each item's paragraph format, and if the position of the list changes, I have to redo that. If there is a way to avoid this, I'll use that.
P.S. Posted to comp.text.frame, framers@xxxxxxxxx, and adobe.framemaker.
Thanks, everyone, for the 2 suggestions. One is the Keep-with-Previous for the 2nd & 3rd bullet items. The other is to use the Orphan Rows in the table designer. Unfortunately, it seems that the problem (in my case) will not be solved by these methods. The reason is because on the 2nd page, there might be very little room due to the presence of a large picture (not an uncommon thing in my document). So the list (or table) might get chopped into a 2-item snippet on this 2nd page, with the tail of the list going onto a 3rd page. The Keep-with-Previous will not prevent this fragmenting in the middle of the list, and neither will a table's Orphan Rows.
