Use of non-breakig spaces in photoshop

I would love to see a feature added to Find/replace text in photoshop, similar to what is seen in InDesign and Illustrator. 

 

In my particular case, I have photoshop docs with lots of text and would love to add non-breaking spaces to specific word groups, such as bussiness names, that i want to make sure do not break onto two lines. 

 

Currently the only way to add non-breaking spaces in photoshop is to hightlight each and every instance and choose the "No Break" from the Character panel flyout. This is extremely non-user-friendly. In an ideal world i'd like to see the same find/replace feature as in InDesign.

 

Thanks for listening.

@Jim Haven right tool for the right job. I can pound a nail with a screwdriver but that doesn't make it efficient.

If you have a lot of text, PS is not the right tool for the job. Use InDesign.

Thanks, but the request was not "is Photoshop a good program to layout
text".

I know InDesign is better suited. Unfort my client uses Photoshop.

Welcome to the rel world.

This might be possible with a script... However, scripting text is very difficult in Photoshop – so I'm not the one to write such a script.

var idnoBreak = stringIDToTypeID( "noBreak" );
desc331.putBoolean( idnoBreak, true );
