    How can I configure hyphenation settings so that InDesign does not hyphenate already hyphenated word

    JanetTingey

      For example:

       

      twenty-seven

       

      It's okay to break at the hypen in the word, but I don't want either twenty or seven to be hyphenated. Is it possible to configure this in the hyphenation instructions? I don't see a way to do it other than manually adding every hyphenated word to the user dictionary.

       

      Thanks!
