We don't have to do that any more.  The bookshare programs do it for us now.

Hi Sue,

I just a minute ago sent a reply to your original question.  Hope you get
the answer!  Sorry I wasn't here to answer more quickly.

I repeat, Mayrie.  Wouldn’t that fix remove all hyphens, such as in Cindy’s
example of mother-in-law?

Hi Lori,

Thanks for giving me another thing to add to the manual!

To remove optional hyphens, I think that you do this:
Open find and replace dialogue by pressing control+h
In the find box type ^-
In the replace box type nothing
Tab to "okay" and press enter.

I think that's what Jamie taught me to do.

Hope I've remembered correctly.

Happy proofreading, and I hope you enjoy your new computer!

Mayrie

Hi, Everyone,

I am proofreading a book that is loaded with optional hyphens.  I believe
that we are not required to remove them, but I would like to do so, but
can't find instructions for doing so in the manual.
Can anyone tell me the process for removing these hyphens?

I'm going to be getting a new computer in several weeks but found this
fairly short book I can complete proofreading before then, so hope I can
remove these hyphens.

Lori C.
