I believe that this issue has been discussed already, but I couldn't find these topics.
I have a text that mentions some company (let it be A.B. Alphabet) many times. All sentences, where its name appears, are segmented in the following way:
Segment 1: A.B.
Segment 2: Alphabet Company is a worldwide leader in ...

I do understand that I can join segments manually, but I would prefer to change the segmentation rules.

Is it possible?

Thank you!

yes it straightforward Dec 17, 2013

You go into settings on the left hand pane, click the scissor item "Segmentation rules", Edit (you can't edit the default one, you have to clone it first and edit the new one), custom list for abbr_long, enter A.B. in the box at the bottom right, add. Make sure you select this rule set before importing the document.

This abbr_long is the exception set to one of the segmentation rules, which says abbreviation + space + capital letter is NOT a break.
