Double hyphen in words that already contain hyphen (minus)
Since a few weeks (we think since the InDesign 16.1 x64 update), we see a major problem in a lot of our books:
Words that already contain a hyphen (minus sign: -), and that are hyphenated automatically by InDesign, get a double hyphen!
Normally, when hyphenated words are at the end of the line, the 'hard typed' hyphen gets replaced by the automatic hyphen (with the blue ~ added above it), but now the automated hyphen is added, so we get two consecutive hyphens (--). Sometimes on the same line, sometimes one on the next (see example screenshot).
This is a serious and big problem, experienced by everyone in our team (10 people), on multiple different projects (using templates we use for years already).
It causes a major liability issue towards our customers, when the books are printed this way! Please fix this.
We are all on Windows 10 Pro and have the latest version installed (InDesign 16.1 x64)
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:
