    When I use ; (semicolon), the string of characters do not hyphen!

    Henry Wilson_969 Level 1

      Let's suppose we have whatever string of characters inside a text frame:

       

      asldfjalksdjflkajsfdklasfd

       

      if the character string doesn't fit inside the text frame and the Hyphenate is checked on the Paragraph panel, the string of characters for examples goes:

       

      asldfjalk-

      sdjflkajs-

      fdklasfd

       

      Let's suppose now that inside this string of characters there is a ; (semicolon):

       

      asldfjalk;sdjflkajsfdklasfd

       

      now on the string of characters do not hyphen, if the text frame is too small it disappears and a red plus sign as usually appears at the bottom right the text frame. So I must enlarge the text frame to see the whole string of characters and if the text frame gets outside the page borders?

       

      Can anyone help me to resolve this?

          Hi Henry,

           

          How often will this occur with the copy you have?

           

          If it's only on occasion, then you could just simply insert forced line breaks as needed.

           

          You put in a line break by placing the cursor where you want a break, and hitting shift-return.

           

          Also, if can't see the text because of the long string (all you see is the red plus sign on the text frame), select the text frame and hit ctrl-y (cmd-y on mac) to open the copy in the story editor. Insert the line break as needed, and the copy should then show up in the text frame.

           

          Hope this helps!

           

          Cheers,
