I have the following text:

The example shown in figure \ref{fg:package_normal} shows the scope of the class \textit{org.\-argouml.\-kernel.\-ProfileConfiguration} (\textit{Having}).

Unfortunately the name ProfileConfiguration is so long that it is longer than the textwidth. That's why I added those \- to indicate that it should be hyphenated earlier. But this does not work. So how can I correct it?

EDIT

Here is a complete example:

\documentclass[formal]{seal_thesis}
\begin{document}
The example shown in figure \ref{fg:package_normal} shows the scope of the class \textit{org.\-argouml.\-kernel.\-ProfileConfiguration} (\textit{Having}).

It works for me. You need to include a complete example. –  Lev Bishop Mar 28 '11 at 23:17
    
Yes maybe it is because of the template and the indention at the start of the line. I'll see that I can create an example. –  RoflcoptrException Mar 28 '11 at 23:21
    
@Lev Bishop I added a complete example, but how can I also include the template? –  RoflcoptrException Mar 28 '11 at 23:24
    
See the answers to Define new hyphenation. I think using \url together with \urlstyle{it} could give you better hyphenation. –  Martin Scharrer Mar 29 '11 at 11:12

You need to either rephrase the sentence or locally increase the tolerance for the problematic paragraph. This will enable LaTeX to hyphenate at the hyphenation points you set and not make an overful line. However, it will not look optimal.

{\tolerance=10000 The example shown in
figure \ref{fg:package_normal} shows
the scope of the class
\textit{org.\-argouml.\-kernel.\-ProfileConfiguration}
(\textit{Having}).\par}

Ok thanks a lot. Then I'll will prefer to rephrase it. –  RoflcoptrException Mar 29 '11 at 0:01
