Define Hyphenation

To change hyphenation for every occurrence of a word: Choose Hyphenation from the Define submenu of the Edit menu to display the Define Hyphenation dialog box. Enter the word to hyphenate into the text box. Click Find to see if the word is already in the hyphenation exceptions file, or click Break to test the hyphenation algorithms. Hyphenation break points are shown by tildes (~). Enter one tilde at each desired break point. Click Add to add the word to the hyphenation dictionary. Click Done to close the dialog box.

To add a list of words to the hyphenation exception dictionary: You can add an ASCII list of words to the hyphenation exception dictionary instead of adding a single word at a time. Choose Hyphenation from the Define submenu of the Edit menu, select the Language from the pop-up menu, then choose Batch Add from the mini-menu in the upper right hand corner of the dialog box. A file selector will appear for you to choose the file to add. The file should be in ASCII form with characters in the native character set as set in the Type Preferences; tildes (~) at each break point; and a tab, paragraph mark or new line character between each of the words. These words will all be added to the user dictionary, but only if the rule based hyphenation for that language will break the word differently.

To export a list of words from the hyphenation exception dictionary: You can export an ASCII list of the hyphenation exceptions to a text file. Choose Hyphenation from the Define submenu of the Edit menu, select the Language from the pop-up menu, then choose Export from the mini-menu in the upper right hand corner of the dialog box. A file selector will appear for you to choose the file to save as. The file will be in ASCII form with characters in the native character set as set in the Type Preferences; tildes (~) at each break point; and a tab, paragraph mark or new line character between each of the words. The main dictionary will come first, with the user dictionary following it in the file.
