Hyphenate text automatically

Let Publisher do some work for you. Use its automatic hyphenation feature to hyphenate text.

  1. Click in the text box or table frame that contains the text you want to hyphenate.

  2. On the Format tab, in the Text group, click Hyphenation.

  3. Select the Automatically hyphenate this story check box.

Note: If you select a text box that is part of a story, the text in all the connected text boxes becomes hyphenated as well.
