Blake_S Posted January 19 Share Posted January 19 Even when you disable hyphenation, Text Frame will still break down words into pieces. There doesn't seem to be any way to stop this. This presents a huge problem in cases where words being arbitrarily broken down is not permitted, which is pretty much all documents I work with. This behaviour also prevents a text overflow error being shown in the preflight, so in cases of documents with hundreds or thousands of pages, it prevents you from knowing where the problems are. Example: a multi-line text frame where all text fits the frame: a multi-line text frame where text doesn't fit the frame and a preflight error should have been shown: instead, no error, and words are broken down between lines. Imagine if this was a business card or something like that. Hyphenation disabled. And what happens in InDesign if you disable hyphenation: With hyphenation disabled a text overflow error is shown like its supposed to, words are not broken down.
