Automatic hyphenation is not a feature of Designer. You could use Publisher, where it is a feature.

You can specify the hyphenation language in Designer, but the controls in the Paragraph panel to enable automatic hyphenation are not present.

Or just stay in Publisher :)

Another thing that might help: You could setup paragraph text styles in Publisher with auto-hyphenation enabled, embed them in a document, Save it, and open that document in Designer. You could then set those text styles as your defaults, making them available for other Designer documents.

@Joachim_L      @walt.farrell

 

Thanks to both of you for the advice,

unfortunately I don't have APu, because I use a lot of notes and especially footnotes;
but I realized from my previous discussion   https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/114850-footnotes/&tab=comments#comment-622887   that with APu footnotes are not possible perhaps, in the near future, therefore I had decided to postpone the purchase.

Anyway thanks for your time, it is highly appreciated.

About 28 Euros right now. It won't get any cheaper I guess. ;)

Even without footnotes, Publisher would let you have:

  • auto-hyphenation
  • linked text frames with reflowing text
  • linked image or document files
  • better text frame controls, including allowing control over the stroke and background for text-on-a-path
  • the Preflight panel to catch errors or potential errors before exporting a PDF file
  • Find and Replace
  • and more.

All of those might be useful even when working with Designer documents. And when you own both Designer and Publisher the close integration within Publisher of the Publisher Persona and the Designer Persona (from Designer) are quite useful.
