So by default, InDesign assumes that you want your paragraphs to be hyphenated, not everyone wants that to be the case. So on a particular paragraph, if you want to turn Hyphenation off or turn it on if it is already off, there is actually a keyboard shortcut to toggle Auto Hyphenation on and off. It's pretty easy to remember. So, let's go ahead and just click into this paragraph here. You can see we have got hyphens going on there and it's Command+Option+Shift or Ctrl+Alt+Shift. What do you think the letter is? That's right. 'H' for hyphenation. So Command+Option+Shift+H, Ctrl+Alt+Shift+H. We will just go ahead and use these and you will see what happens.
So right now, I will hit that keystroke. The hyphens go away. Hyphenation has been turned off for that paragraph. So it's a Paragraph Attribute. It's not a document or application setting here. It's by paragraph. And if I want to turn Hyphenation back on, it's a toggle, so Command+Option+Shift+H or Ctrl+Shift+H and Auto Hyphenation is turned back on for that paragraph. Pretty cool, huh?
