I can't provide a MWE (too difficult to reproduce) so take it as a general question, please:

How can I prevent reledpar generating widows? I read that I could prevent orphans by manually inserting a pagebreak, but what about widows?

Sometimes in my right page (and just in the right!) I get the last row of a paragraph which should be in the previous page.

ATM I'm using just the shiftedpstarts sync option.

I have the same problem in the Endnotes... how can I fix it?

    you can presumably set \widowpenalty=10000 although that is not normally recommended. It would be easier to give answers if you provided a MWE (which can not be difficult to produce if you have a document with a widow) – David Carlisle Jun 26 '18 at 18:46
  • It doesn't work, otherwise I wouldn't have asked :) – Teodoro Jun 26 '18 at 19:13

    a testable example then..... – David Carlisle Jun 26 '18 at 19:43
  • it is very complex to fix widnows with reledpar, because of the problem of syncronisation. But you can use \lednopb for example. – Maïeul Jun 27 '18 at 8:50

    maybe with a MWE and and opened issue on github, I could add a new mode with restore penalties. – Maïeul Jun 27 '18 at 8:54

At the end, what actually worked is the good, old \enlargethispage

You need three runs of compiling in order to get the page fixed.

I still have the problem on the endnotes, however.
