I used WordPerfect for years. I'm sure it has a control for tracking, but I very much doubt that it's automatic. To control widows and orphans, it can't be. I can do a global change in Word, just by editing the font character spacing parameter in the 'Normal" or "Body" style -- but then the entire document will get the adjusted tracking, and that could easily create other widows and/or orphans.

To use tracking to fix widows and orphans, it has to be applied selectively and locally.
