How to turn on automatic hyphenation in Word


By default, automatic word wrapping in Microsof Word is disabled. Movements are inserted not into words, but into spaces between them (words are not broken into parts).

But Word settings can be changed and forced to insert hyphenation into words. Sometimes it is advisable to do this to achieve a more harmonious appearance of the document.

To enable or disable word wrapping, you must:

  1. Select the section of text that should be touched by the change. If you do not select anything, the changes will apply throughout the document.
  2. In the Word menu go to the “Page layout” tab and in the “Page parameters” section click on the item “Hyphenation”. Then select the desired option in the list (“No” or “Auto”, see Image).
