I'm stumped. I can easily add the word "~people's" with an apoostrophe and tilde to the Target User Dictionary and it doesn't break at all.
What exactly are you doing?
I import a .txt file with the words to add every 3 months. I just deleted the word in the User Dictionary in InDesign and added it back in there, not import. This time when I edited the paragraph the word will not hyphenate, so it's behaving properly. Odd.
I’m glad it’s working for you. I suspect that the apostrophe is coming in incorrectly, like a straight quote, from the text file. But correctly when you type it directly into the User Dictionary in InDesign.
Hi Sandee Cohen
I have imported the text file in my UDC and added a word to fix the hyphenation the way my customer want to break (Perf-chart). But still the indd seems takes its original suggestion and app is not considered the added word. Please guide to fix it.
Not too sure I can fix it, but try adding the word as:
Perf~Chart with Case Sensitive turned on.
