Hello all,

I have a small problem with Word and would need som feedback:

When working with Word I sometimes need to break up long words with hyphen (shift+return) which is only visible if the word is really split up on two lines. In case this long word still remains completely on one line, no hyphen should be seen.

If I however type words which normally have two consonants of the same, however three consonants when split up (acoording to Swedish grammar), I would need to know some kind of trick how to handle this in a correct way.

Example: Swedish word for "bus station" is "busstation", which combines the two words "buss" and "station". When added together, only two S are used. However, if I need to split this up on two lines, the result must be "buss-station" and not "bus-station" or even "buss-tation".

Does anyone know if there is a function for this in Word?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Best regards
Erik
