Keeping hyphens when copy-pasting from PDF

I am using FrameMaker 12. I have a manual that contains several code examples, for example source code snippets, scripts, commands, etc. When I create my PDF, the text looks fine, but then I have had feedback from users that when they copy the text from the PDF to for example Notepad ++, certain hyphens disappear.

Example: "http-remoting" becomes "httpremoting" when copied. I have tried using the command Esc n s to make it into a non-breaking hyphen, but that does not seem to work. In Paragraph Designer, the Hyphenate check box is not checked for this paragraph tag.

Any ideas how I could solve this problem?

Thanks! Me anm my colleague managed to solve this issue, using the command Esc -h, in FrameMaker, so this issue is now solved!

Hi Joanna:

So the question is how do you prepare a FrameMaker file  so that the user can copy text from a PDF made from that file and then paste it into Notepad?

I can’t play with this right now (but can later), but I would begin by looking at the Edit menu in Notepad to see if there’s an option to paste unformatted text – similar to using a Paste Special in Fm.

Hi Johanna:

I was just going to sit down to play with it—so glad you figured it out.
