Default Switching off "intelli-justification" in Indesign

We recently had a job sent into our works in Indesign. The customer had supplied a print-ready pdf for us to work with and the Indesign doc was a back-up.

Just before going to press the customer submitted a few corrections to be done. We open up Indesign and did the corrections.

But on one page where we had to change "is" to "it" Indesign altered the page endings, running text around to form different paras. If we altered the text back to way it was ie changing the "it" back to "is" the text reformatted back to the original.

We could understand text reflowing after the altered para due to insertion or deletion of text but not text above and in a different para altogether where there was no change.

This is of course Indesign's "intelli-text" balancing up the paras nicely but as we have to print the job exactly as it is submitted we had to go through the paras putting in soft returns to return the job to how it was submitted.

Does anyone know how to turn off this feature?

This feature is quite annoying, if I was a designer, I would not like the DTP program to decide how it was going to display the text.

Anyone agree?
