How to allow text to be the page width in OneNote

41844108 191 Reputation points

In Teams I needed to covert my educational Wiki pages to OneNote for unknown and alarming stupid reasons, but I'm having text layout issues. For some reason it's making the word wrap happen at halfway across the page. How do I fix the text engine to make text not wrap until it reaches the end of the page? Obviously OneNote is a terrible replacement the Wiki but I'm not the one who mandated this on short notice and decided to tell everyone to convert all Wiki to OneNote pages, that's MS.

    Hi @41844108

    OneNote is not a word processor, so the numbers in the Paragraph Spacing dialog box work slightly differently than numbers in Microsoft Word and other Office programs.

    In the Paragraph Spacing dialog box, the numbers in the Before and After boxes can cause confusing results, depending on how the text is formatted.

    Unlike Word, OneNote doesn't show hidden paragraph marks. If you use soft line breaks (Shift+Enter) in your notes, OneNote treats the text as part of the same paragraph and applies spacing only before or after the entire block of text (paragraph) (before or after hard paragraph return (Enter).

    For more details, you could refer to:
