Hello

I have one sentence: 'Fudge (Creates 1 lb. of Chocolaty Delight!)'

I want 'fudge' to be one segmentand '(Creates 1 lb. of Chocolaty Delight!)' another one. The WB will consider the whole sentence as one segment and when I shrink the segment, it looks 'Fudge '(Creates 1 lb.' but it won't go any shorter.

Is there a way I can set the delimitation myself without having to change the setup of the whole document. Or is there an easy way to do it?

Thanks.

Manually insert a full stop after Fudge Jan 28, 2006

If you manually insert a full stop after Fudge so that your sentence reads

"Fudge. (creates 1lb. of delight)" (or whatever your original sentence was), shorten the segment, and then delete the full stop after fudge.

I think it ought to work.
