The only thing that comes to my mind is if you lie to the program
Ad John-Smith and Smith,-John to the dictionary then when all the work is done do a search for those names and replace with John Smith or Smith, John.
Maybe instead of a "-" you could use a glyph caractar that will not be used in the job. Depends on how many names you are adding i guess
Thanks for the idea. That would work but adds an extra step. I am working with a group of high school students to create a yearbook so it needs to be as simple as possible. For pages already created but not submitted we would need to add the "-" or other special character, spell check and then remove it.
Print out one copy hand it around the school to all the kids to check their own names
Hopefully someone else here has a better idea for you
If you plan to add names, don't add them to a specific language (except this name is used only to that specific language, as it is often with transcripted names from RU or Arabic, which will have different transscription in other languages), add them to the dictionary "All names". An add a tilde (~) before them, that will hinder hyphenation to them.
