I need to prevent a word from splitting into two lines of text. For example, the word "polinómico" splits in "po" and "linómico" when i compile the code.

\documentclass{article}    
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\begin{document}

segundos para resolver un problema de $n$ variables, decimos que es resoluble en tiempo  polinómico. No así si se requirieran, por ejemplo...


\end{document}

I have used \mbox, and the word doesn't split, however, the word is awkwardly positioned far beyond the usual end of the row.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\begin{document}

segundos para resolver un problema de $n$ variables, decimos que es resoluble en tiempo  \mbox{polinómico}. No así si se requirieran, por ejemplo...


\end{document}

How can i make latex to put that word completely into the next line without using \\?

Note: I'm using \usepackage[spanish]{babel} and win 12-52 encoding

  • Your code doesn't produce the issue. – user11232 Nov 12 '14 at 13:33

    The question is interesting, but your example should be a paragraph that shows the issue. – egreg Nov 12 '14 at 14:55

    Note that by default latex will split the word using english hyphenation rules which are unlikely to be very useful here, you may do better with \usepackage[spanish]{babel} (if I guessed the right language:-) – David Carlisle Nov 12 '14 at 15:02
  • What do you mean that you are using 'win 12-52' encoding? Your preamble says that the encoding of your .tex file is UTF8. If that is not the case, you should use a different option for inputenc. But I'm not sure if that is what you mean... – cfr Nov 13 '14 at 1:22
  • Also, I'm afraid that your code still doesn't reproduce the problem. When I compile (with babel added), the line break occurs after 'resoluble' - no hyphenation at all. Is the hyphenation wrong generally or do you just not want the word broken in this particular case? If it is general, could you state the appropriate hyphenation points for the word? – cfr Nov 13 '14 at 1:24
