Force Hyphenation in QuarkXPress

Sometimes when a word breaks at the end of a line, it doesn’t break exactly where you would choose to break it.

If you want to force the word to hyphenate between two specific letters, use a discretionary hyphen where you want the word to break. The word will hyphenate only when necessary (based on your H&J settings) and only where you’ve indicated. If you don’t want the word to hyphenate at all, place the discretionary hyphen before the word.

To insert a discretionary hyphen in QuarkXPress, press Command-hyphen or choose Utilities> Insert Character> Special.
