Hyphenate an Entire Document Automatically
create an evenly aligned right edge, or you want to bump the whole word to the next line,
producing a more ragged look.
If you prefer, you can activate Word’s built-in Hyphenation feature to eliminate white space
and gaps along the edges of your text. When you use the Hyphenation feature, you can opt
to apply hyphenation manually or automatically, as follows:
Automatic hyphenation. Word automatically hyphenates an entire document.
If you later change the document’s contents, Word rehyphenates the document as
needed, while you work.
Manual hyphenation. Word searches for instances in which hyphenation is needed;
you then manually decide whether to add a hyphen at each instance. If you later
modify the document, Word displays and prints only the hyphens that fall at the ends
of lines. To rehyphenate the document, repeat the manual hyphenation process.
Note
If you want to apply hyphenation to text that’s written in a language other than
the Microsoft Office default language, you need to ensure that the language is
enabled for editing (through the Microsoft Office 2010 Language Settings), and
you need to use Set Proofing Language (go to the Language tab on the Review
tab) to set up the proofing tools for that language. You can learn more about
translation features and setting up languages in Chapter 9, “Translating Text and
Working with Languages.”
Either way, the process of adding hyphenation begins with Hyphenation on the
Page Layout tab, as shown here:
Hyphenate an Entire Document Automatically
To automatically hyphenate an entire document, on the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup
group, click Hyphenation and then click Automatic. To configure the automatic
hyphenation settings, click Hyphenation Options to display the Hyphenation dialog box, shown in
Figure 11-9.
