Chapter 14. CUSTOMIZING INDESIGN > Setting the Dictionary Preferences

Setting the Dictionary Preferences

InDesign lets you choose the default dictionary and the hyphenation controls. These are the Dictionary Preferences. (For more information on setting the dictionary for a document, see Chapter 9, "Automating Text." For more information on working with hyphenation, see Chapter 10, "Advanced Text.")

To set the Dictionary Preferences:

1.
Choose Edit > Preferences > Dictionary. This opens the Preferences dialog box with the Dictionary options visible.

Figure 14.16. The Dictionary Preferences settings of the Preferences dialog box.


2.
Set the default language by using the Language pop-up list.

3.
It you have installed special hyphenation preferences, choose a preference from the Hyphenation Vendor pop-up list.

4.
If you have installed special spelling preferences, choose a preference from the Spelling Vendor pop-up list.

5.
Set the options for how the Hyphenation Exceptions should be composed.

6.
Check Merge user dictionary into document if you want any specific hyphenation exceptions to travel with the document.

Tip

This is especially useful if you send the native InDesign document to a service bureau for output.

7.
Check Recompose all stories when modified to make sure the hyphenation exceptions in the User Dictionary have been applied to all the stories in the document.
