Bad breaks and double hyphenation

Is there a way to stop ID from hyphenating a word that already has a hyphen in it? I'm trying to avoid bad breaks like:

 

twen-ty-

two

 

I'd like ID to either break the word where the hyphen already is, or not break the word at all.

 

Thanks!

Check out this post from David Blatner at InDesign Secrets: https://indesignsecrets.com/stop-hyphenated-words-hyphenating.phpIt involves setting up a "no-break" Character style then using Grep Styles to find actually hyphenated words and applying the no-break style to them.

If you add a discretionay hypen (ctrl-shift-dash) after the hypen then you will get as you want while retaining the flexibility of reflowable text.

This doesn't always work, unfortunately. Sometimes ID will break the word in a place other than where the discretionary hyphen is, or I'll get two hyphens showing up.

Ben je er al uit? Bij bewerken - voorkeuren-  moet je bij woordenboek Hunspell wijzigen in Proximity.

Probleem opgelost. 😉
