What are underfull hboxes and vboxes and how can I get rid of them?

I'm just trying to break a line at some point, e.g.

Word 1\\
Word 2

Which will give me an underfull hbox (badness 10000) warning on building on line "Word 1". This is not really bothersome since the result is what I want. But since I'm getting a warning, I'm guessing there's a better way to break lines?

  • I don't get a warning when I do this. What type of document is it? Are you using pdflatex? – levesque Oct 15 '12 at 16:32

    Why do you want to break this way? There is most of the time a better way, such as a list environment or a normal paragraph break. – Juri Robl Oct 15 '12 at 16:35
  • I agree with Juri Robl on this. If you really insist on doing this, I believe inserting \hfill before the manual linebreak should fix it. – levesque Oct 15 '12 at 16:35

Please always post complete documents that show the problem.



Word 1\\
Word 2


produces no underfull box warnings.
