I am using a Macbook and would like to break a single word on my document using a hyphen. Manual hyphenation is not asking me about the word I am trying to hyphenate: 'components'.

I want to break the line by hyphenating from 'compo-'.

Exactly like the following:

(i) Explain the von Neumann architecture, drawing a diagram of its major compo-nents.

How do I do this?

  • Is this a layout issue? Why don't you just put your cursor there and add the hyphen where required and then tell Auto-Correct to ignore the issue? – music2myear Dec 4 '18 at 23:44
