Has anyone noticed the terrible hyphenation errors in the latest version of InD? I'm finding so many mis-hyphenations, it seems I have to check every third one! I've checked my hyphenation settings, and they seem fine (see attached).
InDesign’s hyphenation is dictionary based. You need to apply a language (in the Character panel) to text to tell InDesign which language’s dictionary to use. If the text has no language InDesign will use an algorithm which is not as accurate. If the text has the wrong language applied then InDesign might not find the words in its dictionary and still use an algorithm. Check to see if the right language it applied.
Other causes of poor hyphenation can be narrow columns that require aggresive hyphenation that might not be ideal.
No narrow columns, but I will check the dictionary. Thanks!!
Thanks, I'll check all those things. Much appreciated!
