Suppress hyphenation keyboard shortcut

Tags: #hyphen #supress_hyphenation

When I try to supress hyphenation in an arithmetic expression (-64dBVp-p), I select that word then hit shortcut

ESC n s (as the documentation says). A "no hyphenation" marker appears but the word itself disappears. Am I doing something wrong?

 

Cheers,

 

JP

    What happens if you do a CTL-L to refresh the screen? Does that bring it back?

    You shouldn’t be selecting the word. Place your cursor in front of it and then enter the no-hyphen code.

     

    You will also have to use non-breaking hyphens inside your expression.

    While you can remove them from the Allow Line Breaks, you could also have just inserted non-breaking hyphens (Esc - [hyphen] h). Maybe for the future (i.e., it's easier to type, and you don't prevent appropriate breaks).

    I thought "ESC n s" was just for suppressing the hyphenation symbol - at least that's what the FM9 shortcuts list that Jetsetcom.net had published a few years ago and the help says.
