Au­to­mat­i­cally iden­ti­fy­ing wid­ows and or­phans in a doc­u­ment

This pack­age iden­ti­fies all wid­ows and or­phans in a doc­u­ment to help a user to get rid of them. The act of re­solv­ing still needs to be done man­u­ally: By rewrit­ing text, run­ning some para­graph long or short or or ex­plic­itly break­ing in some strate­gic place.

It will also iden­tify and warn about words bro­ken across columns or pages and dis­play for­mu­las sep­a­rated from their in­tro­duc­tory para­graph.

The ini­tial idea was born way back in 2012 when some­body on stack­ex­change asked if it would be pos­si­ble to Find all wid­ows and or­phans.
