How to make a series of indivisible characters?
Hyphenation (hyphen deferred to the next line for words that are too long to fit at the end of a line) can be enabled or disabled on demand.
This is a property that one can define in the paragraph style (Text Flow tab). This functionality, which can be disabled, is designed for lexical words.
Insert a No-width no break
How do you prevent hyphenation at the end of the line for character series like m3/s, C++ or Notepad++?
You need to insert a no-width no break between the two + characters in the case of C++ for example.
No-width no break means that the characters on both sides will be bound and the inserted character will remain invisible.
This is one of the formatting marks available through the▸ menu.
The insertion of this formatting mark does not have a shortcut key by default. You can assign a shortcut key combination to it.
Assign a shortcut key combination to a No-width no break
- go to ▸ ▸ menu;
- Insert category;
- no-width no break function;
- pick a shortcut combination that is not already used in the Shortcut Keys list;
- click on Modify; and
- click on OK.
In recent versions it is no longer necessary to activate Bi-Directional writing.
