Are you writing a report, an assignment, or just a plain old document and need to hyphenate you paragraphs?
By default, Word 2007 has hyphenation turned off, but it is really easy to turn it on, and there are a number of options to control how the hyphenation works.
To turn on hyphenation in Word 2007 to hyphenate your document, simply:
1) Go to the “Page Layout” tab on the Ribbon
2) Look for the “Page Setup” group
3) Click on “Hyphenation”
4) Select “Automatic”
Now that your document is hyphenated, lets look at the settings you can change to control exactly how the hyphenation works!
5) Click on “Hyphenation” again
6) Click on “Hyphenation Options…”
In the box that appears, there are two key settings you can play with. The first is the “Hyphenation zone”, and the second is “Limit consecutive hyphens to”. Change these settings to adjust the hyphenation to meet your needs!
‘till next time!
