Hi Alex,

Yes, the function exists. What you describe is called "hyphenation". The
settings for this are in the Preference dialog. You will find the language
of hyphenation and other settings. Then, in the top menu bar, you will find
Extra > Hyphenate Text (there is even a De-Hyphenate menu). This will help
accomplish a much "quieter" typographic gray. Unless you have set the type
to a very narrow column width and a very large typesize, you should see a
clear improvement.

All other questions have been answered by Greg !

Cheers !
