When hyphenating a word like 'Groot-Brittanië' the hyphenated word shows two dashes which of course is not accurate.
I found a work-around. Go to edit>preferences>dictionary and switch the setting for hyphenation from "Hunspell" to proximity.
This seems to solve the issue. Even though the issue should not have occurred in the first place.
I talked to Adobe helpdesk. It is a known bug and they are working on a fix, but no ETA for a fix at the moment, but I guess it will be in the next Indesign update... they said they would send me an e-mail when they have a fix.
work-around is to install a previous version of Indesign. 2020 doesnt seem to have this issue
@Adobe. Yes, this messes up all our texts and bookprojects. In Dutch language it add double hyphens so a word like North-Dakota results in:
It seems quite random when it does this or not... sometimes it correctly breaks on a hyphen without adding an extra one, but most of the time you end up with double hyphens. This is extremel annoying. Please fix this!
Same here! All was fine for years, until some update (?) over the past few months. Seems to be present in Dutch language settings, and with non-capitalized words. for example doe-het-zelf-project results in:
@Adobe: This is still a major and very serious problem for everyone in our company, please try to fix this!
Same problem here! We don't have this problem when we switch back to InDesign v 15.1.3 with the same file however.
This is indeed very annoying!
