I am writting with LaTeX my bachelor thesis. I am using XeLaTeX because you can easily highlight text with the xesearch package.

My problem is that words with a dash like HTML-Request are not broken properly. In the PDF file there are two dashes at the end of the line.

I suppose the problem is the usage of \UndoBoundary{-}. I am using it because otherwise notionssuch as Web-Verifier won't be highlighted.

Could you help me, please?

I post the full head maybe you could give me some other hints, too. I am using KomaScript.

\thispagestyle{plain}
Web-Verifier HTTP-Request HTTP-Response HTTP-Request HTTP-Response HTTP-Request HTTP-Response

\end{abstract}
\end{document}

EDIT:

I commented \UndoBoundary{-} and \SearchList out. The dash at the end of the line works as expected, now.

But I would like to highlight words with dashes (e.g. Web-Verifier) in my document with \SearchList.

Could anybody help me with this problem?

PS: @admins Sorry for the inconvenience.

  • An example of text producing the issue is needed. – egreg Jul 21 '14 at 14:25

I have found a working solution for me. It's probably not the best. I use the package hyphenat and replace the dash in words, which should not be highlighted, with \hyp{}.

Now it looks like this:
