Why does my text wrap to the next line before reaching the margin?

This happens if you accidentally change the paragraph indentation for the document.

Position the cursor in the text that is wrapping in the wrong place and from the  Home tab,  Paragraph group, select the dialog box icon (small icon in the bottom right corner)

Ensure that Indentation, both before and after text, are set to zero and that no special formatting has been set.
