Default hyphen removal

Manuscript. Auto hyphen on. I do not want certain words hyphenated in certain
sentences. Is this doable? Thanks.

Hi wammac,

Yes: Select the word(s), and check "Tools Language Set language Do not
check spelling or grammar".
You can do that with Find/Replace, too, and could record a macro if you need
it often.

Regards,
Klaus

You can also define a character style formatted as Default Paragraph Font +
Do not check spelling or grammar and apply that style to words you don't
want hyphenated.

Thanks. Problem solved. I would not have found this solution in a million
years. Thanks again.

Thank you. Both solutions, yours and Klaus's, solve the problem. These have
to rank near the top of MS Word obscure solutions. Thanks again.

I agree that considering hyphenation a "spelling" issue is a stretch.
