I'm doing a book that refers to multiple blog pages throughout. In the footnotes, where the blog addresses are given, InDesign is really spacing out the lines and breaking too soon, especially after slashes followed by words with hyphens between them. It's quite obvious that one or two of the words, with their hyphens, would fit on the line above. I've tried adding space bars after hyphens but it won't force the words preceding my entered space up. I've tried using discretionary hyphens in places, and that didn't work either. The only way I can do it is to put soft returns in and I'm not sure I like the idea of that. Any suggestions?
Try setting the paragraph style for the footnotes to use one of the Single Line composers instead of the Paragraph Composer, and add your discretionary breaks where you'd like them to happen.
WOW, Peter. That is so cool! Thank you so very much!
