How not to split words with a character in the middle

Hi,

 

I am doing a layout for a text that uses the abbreviation P/CVE and it happens to get split between lines quite often, which is a problem. Using CTRL+SHIFT+- does not really work because the software still splits the word at /. I supposed I could change letter spacing but that doesn't seem very elegant and also could easily create the same issue with the word elswhere in the paragraph.

Is there a way to say to InDesign not to split a particular chain of characters or something like that?

Thank you.

 

Jakub

You can creat a character style to apply No Break, and apply it as a GREP Style using the fhe following GREP expression: \<\w+\/\w+\>

 

This expression means find the start of a word, then any number of word characters followed by a forward slash then any number of word characters up to the end of the word.
