There's no direct way (which I consider a major flaw). You can use find/change to search for no break and assign a character style with an obvious contrasting color. When you've finished fixin things you can delete the character syle and replace with None.
This is why you should use a no break character style if possible. Change the style to find the problems and then change it back.
Thank you for the heads up... I really appreciate your taking the time to reply. It helps me understand (even if it still confuses me).
I've just found another way (bit of a whirly faff, but it works).
1. Goto the line that is bunching.
2. Put cursor inbetween any two words.
3. Hit the space bar until the line that was bunching gets a really big spacing instead.
4. The word that jumped onto the next line is the offending one with a no-break in it.
This is what InDesign has reduced me to I have accomlished great things with it, yet it really hammers me with little details that cascade helplessly.
I have a script called something like ShowNoBreak.jsx - it does exactly what you'd want it to do, toggles highlighting all instances of No Break. Find it at Peter Kahrel's collection of absurdly useful scripts.
It's called "Highlight No Break."
Change your no break property into a no-break character style with find & replace.
Give it a specific color, later you can delete the color property from the style.
