Wondering if anyone has thoughts on how to accomplish this? I'd like to make sure I never hyphenate our brand name without manually checking the body copy.
Type the name in a text frame, select it and go to the Edit menu > Spell checking > User Dictionary. Then add a tilde before the name and click on the add button.
Thanks, this is great!
Is there any way to make this work when there is a / character in the middle of the word?
Good question! Doesn't seem it's possible, but I am not absolutely sure.
I'll mark jmlevy solution correct, but if anyone has the same (niche) problem as me, I figured out a way to accomplish this when there's a / character in the middle.
I added a grep style to my base paragraph style that applies a character style of nobreak to my word. I'll have to remember to extend the nobreak character style if I want to add another new one to the word.
As this is a name, I suggest to apply the language [No Language] to the brand name. Create a character style woth no language (it suppress any hyphenation), and in the paragraph style set the GREP style to your brandname.
If the style a strutured build up, so that all styles inherit their properties to a common root style, you need add this GREP style onle to this root style.
In my test, No Language won't stop the name from breaking at the "/"--No Break is better in this case.
