How to suppress hyphenation for typesetting

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Although the typesetting specifications for most shells specify hyphenation, you can use the hyphenat package to suppress all hyphenation:

  1. Add the hyphenat package to your document.
  2. On the Typeset toolbar, click the Options and Packages button Options and Packages button or, from the Typeset menu, choose Options and Packages.
  3. Choose the Package Options tab.
  4. In the Packages in Use box, select hyphenat and then choose Modify.
  5. In the Category box, choose Hyphenation.
  6. In the Options box, select None.
  7. Choose OK twice to return to your document.

Note that because the None option prevents all hyphenation, you may get LaTeX messages about bad line breaks and overfull boxes when you typeset compile your document.
