I'm wondering how to format a long url. I want it to be allowed to break
at the end of the line anywhere within the URL, without adding a hyphen. So:
would be fine.
I've tried creating a character style with the language set to [No
Language] but that doesn't seem to do the trick. If I disable
hyphenation in the paragraph containing the URL, things are better, but
the cost is rather high. I'd rather not disable hyphenation.
I'd also prefer not to have to add discretionary breaks of one sort or
another if avoidable.
Finally, for my scripting brethren, I found this intriguing property:
Data Type: Boolean
Adobe InDesign CS6 (8.0) Object Model
If true, words unassociated with a hyphenation dictionary can break to
the next line on any character.
But applying it to some selected text by running this line of script
app.selection.allowArbitraryHyphenation = true;
doesn't seem to achieve anything at all.
Any help would be appreciated.
Have you tried playing a bit with tracking? It's a little tricky but in some situations it helps.
Thanks. Yes, tracking could help in some cases. But it's not a direct
answer to the question -- how to allow InDesign to break before any
