Inserting non-breaking spaces and hyphens

Where it is not desirable for words separated by a space or by a hyphen to span over two lines, or where an optional hyphen is desired, you can insert a special formatting mark.

To access the Formatting marks options, select from the menu bar Insert > Formatting marks. Impress supports three formatting marks:

  • Non-breaking space: A non-breaking space between two words prevents these two words being separated over two lines. Press Control+Space bar on the keyboard to insert a non-breaking space.
  • Non-breaking hyphen: A non-breaking hyphen keeps the two words separated by the hyphen on the same line.
  • Optional hyphen: An invisible hyphen that is activated (thus breaking the word) only when the word is too long to fit on one line.
Image:documentation_caution.png In OOo Writer a non-breaking hyphen can be inserted by pressing Control+Minus sign. This shortcut does not work in Impress.
