I've been using Word for Windows since version 2.0 (1992), and the more I learn about it, the more I realize how little I know. But I may know a few things that you don't, and I'll help if I can. I answer many questions every day in Microsoft's peer support forums and as a result have been awarded the MVP (Most Valuable Professional) designation by Microsoft Corporation. You may be able to find the answer to your question at the Word MVPs' FAQ site or at my own Word FAQ site, so please check those first! Please, no questions about VBA (macros), Registry editing, networks, or complex merges, as I have no experience with these aspects of Word, nor do I have any experience with Word for Mac. Please indicate which version of Word you are using; if you are not sure, see "What version of Word do I have?".

The right edge of text is controlled by the right margin - so setting the margin to a smaller amount will cause the text to wrap earlier - you can also put in a manual line break (shift enter) to force

In the Page Number Format dialog, you have checked the box for "Include chapter number" and indicated the correct heading style for the chapter numbers? Make sure there are no empty paragraphs in the heading
