Adobe PhotoShop - Prevent Specific Words From Breaking In Photoshop (7/CS)


When a word reaches the edge of a text box, Photoshop may hyphenate it to maintain the selected alignment. However, you should never hyphenate some words (including proper nouns and words that change meaning when taken apart). To restrict a word from breaking across lines:


  1. Highlight the desired word on your canvas using the Horizontal Type tool
  2. Open the Character palette (Window > Character) if it isn't already open
  3. Select No Break from the Character palette-s options menu
