What does "trying to use hyphenation options" mean? You do know about
user and site dictionaries, right? Both are plain text files, easily
manipulated with FrameScript, etc.
I'm no expert -- I haven't done anything fancy with them, just
bulk-added some entries -- but you can specify hyphenation points for
any word by adding it to the user/site dictionary, and what you specify
will override/replace the existing (built-in) hyphenation.
Simply enter the word with hyphens wherever you want a hyphenation
You can also prevent a word from being hyphenated -- just precede it
with a hyphen:
Of course, if you want to change 10,000 words, the task might be a bit
daunting. ;-) But maybe there is a text file source for what you want?
