Controlling Hyphenation

Carefully controlling hyphenation can help you create documents that look and read better. If you justify text between margins, hyphenating can help you reduce the amount of whitespace between words. If you justify text at the left margin, hyphenating helps reduce the raggedness of the right margin. It can be particularly helpful in maintaining even line lengths in narrow columns, helping readers read smoothly, without distraction.

You can let Word hyphenate your document automatically, or you can use manual hyphenation to control where hyphens appear in words. In addition, you can use nonbreaking hyphens or optional hyphens to control where hyphenated words or phrases break.
