I have a client that is real picky about the title of their business which is 2 words from being separated with the first word on one line and the next word on the line below. There are other times like names of people that will get hyphenated and they dont want that either. I know I can turn off all hyphens but I still want them, just not with certain words. Is there a way to control both of these?
That helps but is there a way for it to do this throughout the entire document? Its a long newsletter with tons of text. Id really like to avoid searching for all instance of the word. Also with text revisions, text will shift so what didnt break before may break later
I must be missing something. When I add the tilde before the word and add it to the dictionary, nothing happens to the document. When I do the same with a hyphen, it doesnt let me add that word because its a special character
I did learn something though which seems to be what I need mostly. For the two word title, I can change the space between the words to a non breaking space with type/white space/non breaking space. I change it in one, copy the whole line, and do a search for that title throughout the document and replace with the new version all at once.
Make a new character style with No Break its only attribute. Open the Find/Change dialog and type the company name in the Find field. In the Change Format field, set your No Break character style. Set the search scope to Document and click Change All.
Just to throw in another option, I sometimes do this through find and change.
I just type the word in the Find what field that I don't want to hyphenate, and then I go to the change format area on the bottom of the dialog box and click the no break check box in the basic character formats area, and then I change all in the document.
Hope that helps too..

For that you can disable Hyphenate Capitalized words in your paragraph styles.
But don't use this if you have to typeset German text. In German, *all* proper nouns are capitalized -- and "Fahrvergnügen" isn't the longest one by far.
