I have a trivial (I hope) problem. I want to move the last line from the even page to the odd one and not to break the paragraph. I tried \newpage and it moved the line to the odd page but it broke the paragraph too. Then I tried \pagebreak[1] but my text floated (vertically) to the bottom even though i used \raggedbottom in my preamble (by the way I wouldn't like to use \raggedbottom).

I googled and found maybe changepage package could help. I used it but my footer moved up and of course I don't want it.

I hope it's clear. Do you know what to do?

I think you mean to move "the last line from an even page" to the next odd page, don't you? Did you tried \enlargethispage{-\baselineskip}? – Martin Scharrer Feb 14 '11 at 9:54
A \newpage before the line which should move to the next page should definitively work! If it doesn't, then you have something special, which you should show in an example. – Herbert Feb 14 '11 at 10:09
Martin, thanks a lot! It works great! Yes, I ment "the last line from an even page to the next odd page". :) – kotsport Feb 14 '11 at 11:10
Herbert, \newpage works, but it makes another paragraph and I don't want it. I want to make a break inside paragraph. – kotsport Feb 14 '11 at 11:14

You can enlarge or reduce the current page using the following command. To add or remove a line use \baselineskip (the distance between two lines, i.e. their baselines) as reference:
