I am using Microsoft Office Mac 2011. In a paragraph, at the end of each line, words are broken. For example, if I type

This is a test sentence. This is a test sentence. 

It displays like

This is a test sentence. This is a te
st sentence.

How do I fix? I would prefer

This is a test sentence. This is a 
test sentence.

Are the words really "broken" like this or are they hypen-ated? Can you add a screenshot maybe? – slhck Aug 22 '11 at 18:52
@slhck They are NOT hyphenated. They are just broken. – Chang Aug 22 '11 at 19:00
I have this problem in the windows 2010 version, when I use the SansSerif font and only when I use that font. I hope this information helps. – N4TKD Aug 22 '11 at 19:12
Assuming you have Page Layout, Page Setup, Hyphenation, Hyphenation Options it might be relevant to know what your settings there are. However this might be due to a locale difference - are you using an Asian version? (see here). – pnuts Dec 29 '12 at 1:11
Also do you have any boxes checked at the bottom of Word Options, Advanced, Layout Options? – pnuts Dec 30 '12 at 20:29

Check if Hyphenation is on as this could explain the problem ( Make the automatic hyphenation off )
