A Typing Trick for Writers

Help For Your Manuscript

By Annette Rey

I said help for your manuscript but, hey, Bloggers, this is for you, too.

I like my written work to look clean, well-thought out, well-planned. I’m a stickler on things both large and small. Are you?

Don’t you hate it when you are typing away and something in the software program is not cooperating with your standards? How do you fix it?

Here’s a little hint for the problem when a hyphenated word at the end of a type-written line separates onto the next line, as in:

“Here’s a special hint for the problem when a hyphenated word at the end of a type-written line separates onto the next line.”

If you perform a Ctrl + Shift + hyphen (at the same time) in the word, the entire hyphenated word will be thrown onto the next line, as so:

“Here’s a special hint for the problem when a hyphenated word at the end of a type‑written line separates onto the next line.”

I typed “typeCtrl+Shift+-written” and the entire word type-written was not separated and appeared on the next line.

Here’s hoping you find these hints helpful as you pursue perfection in your writing and in its presentation to your readers.
