# What to do so text won't splitted on the edge of paragraph? [duplicate]

I don't know if my title is descriptive enough, but that is my problem. In justified paragraph some text will be splitted, like 'descriptive' become 'des-criptive' and the 'criptive' part is on the next line, I hope you understand.

Please this file for better example, I've included the lyx, tex, and pdf output. I don't want the text to be splitted, can I adjust some settings so it behave just like the default behaviour on LO Writer, Ms. Word, or another WYSIWYG text editor?

I'm using LyX on Linux.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

• Do you want the text to still be justified? If yes, see if tex.stackexchange.com/questions/31301/… helps (add the commands to the preamble). If no, `\raggedright`. – Torbjørn T. Jun 26 '13 at 6:37
• Yes, and it works, and now I know that feature called hyphenation, thanks! – Nur Jun 26 '13 at 6:50
• Glad it helped -- I just found another related question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/5036/… As a side note, I wouldn't do that, personally. Without hyphenation, but with justification, you could end up with very large spaces between words, which doesn't look very good. – Torbjørn T. Jun 26 '13 at 7:25
