This question already has an answer here:
I drafted a thesis in MS Word, using block sentence formatting. It looks very nice. Of course, for the final version, I'm going to use Latex, however when transitioning from MS Word to tex, pdftex (texlive) chose to hyphenate pretty much each word at the end of a line.. and complain alot where it couldn't.
Word manages to get along without hyphenation by adjusting the word spacing on each individual line, which imo looks better. Is there a way to achieve this in Latex?
EDIT: I'm not looking for a solution to "fix" hyphenation for words that would otherwise cause \hbox problems, I want to avoid hypenation alltogether by giving pdftex more freedom to add space between words.
EDIT2: Ok, people get a bit focused on my slight exaggeration of how often Latex/pdftex uses hyphenation. Please focus on the actual question: Can I disable hypenation by forcing latex/pdftex to adjust word spacing to fit the words, respecting hbox bounds. This way and not the way that is suggested in the "possible duplicates", which i read before posting this.
