As Lauren says, you can simply uncheck Hyphenation in the Paragraph panel or in the Hyphenation section of your Paragraph Style, but don't be too quick to throw away the hyphens. No hyphenation also tends to leave you in trouble when you have widows and orphans to deal with. Some things worth considering: Language: Hyphenation requires the language of the ...

1) To turn off hyphenation throughout the entire paragraph, go into your paragraph style, click on Hyphenation, and uncheck the first box, which says Hyphenate. That being said... 2) No, it is NOT bad practice to hyphenate. In fact, if you have justified text, and you don't hyphenate, it is extremely difficult to read the body copy. InDesign will add ...

I just found out how to avoid hyphenation in a single word, which took me a long time, so I am posting it here for anyone else looking for it: Select the word you want to "keep together".

The Character Style approach that Lollero so beautifully illustrated is the simple way to handle this, using the Underline option, where you have only single-line or partial line snippets. Where you have a multiple line code snippet, rather than making a table, do this: Drag out a text frame and make its background light grey, then type your text in the ...

My 0.02$: unfortunately these times people often forget about possibility to simply align text to the left. If you're about to use "justification" without hyphenation (as some already pointed out) you should be extra careful and pay close attention to what a program does to spaces between words. It's quite possible results will be disastrous. You'll get a ...
