  • In the HTML category of the Insert bar, click the Characters button and select Insert Non-breaking Space.
  • Select Insert > HTML > Special Characters > Non-Breaking Space.
  • Press Control+Shift+Spacebar (Windows) or Option+Spacebar (Macintosh).

To set a preference to add non-breaking spaces:

  1. Select Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Dreamweaver > Preferences (Macintosh).
