Inserting non-breaking space in Open Office

Sometimes when typing you want to use white space to separate groups of digits, e.g. in phone number, amount of currency units etc. The problem here is that the pagination function of your software may decide that it wants to break the line exactly in the middle of your group of digits, which is not exactly what you would like to have.

In Open Office text processor you can solve this issue quite easily. Just insert the so called non-breaking space character by pressing Ctrl+Shift+spacebar simultaneously! It looks just like the ordinary space, but is regarded as a “normal”, non-whitespace character by the software.
