Usually a hard hyphen (-)do not allow hyphenation in other place of one word, but you can use \textemdash instead of the ligature ---: \documentclass{article} % only to show the margins \usepackage[showframe]{geometry,xcolor} \makeatletter \def\Gm@hrule{}% \def\Gm@vrule{\color{gray!30}\vrule width 1pt height\textheight depth\z@}% \def\Gm@hruled{}% ...

Try to add the ...
