Hanging or Stranded Words

How to squeeze words back into previous sentences.

The procedure is to add a code to the end of any word on the
existing line that extends its maximum length.
This procedure temporarily extends a specific line's maximum
length, until the next line starts.

There are three choices of how far that you can extend a line.
The numbers refer to the maximum line length, not specifically a
character count but similar to the number of characters. If you
are in the middle of a paragraph and want a single word moved,
then you only want to extend the length by enough to fit that one
more word (caution: words can end up off the page). If the end
of this specific sentence is also the end of a paragraph, you can
simply use the add 10 more option. If a one time use of the add
10 option does not move enough content, you can move words on
lines previous to this, effectively making this line need less content
For 4 more enter the code #y (sharps followed by lowercase y)
For 7 more enter the code #s (sharps followed by lowercase s)
For 10 more enter the code #x (sharps followed by lowercase x)

The code can be placed at the end of any word already on the
line, but not at the end of where the current line breaks.
You can use a code only once per line, but you can use it for
multiple lines within the text.

When would you use this?
For example, at the end of a paragraph, or each chapter, where
the text ends, if one, two or three words are the only contents of
the next or last page.

This procedure changes a single line length in one specific layout
choice. This procedure would typically done while reviewing your
ebook's readable script.
When publishing your ebook in multiple layouts, other layouts with
different line lengths will not benefit from extending the same
