Soft Hyphen

A soft hyphen is basically an optional hyphen. When inserting into a word, you’re basically telling the program to break here if necessary only.

Non-Breaking Hyphen

A non-breaking hyphen is a glyph which shows a hyphen but does not wrap to a new line.

Non-Breaking Space

A space between two words which does not wrap to a new line.

Line Breaks

Soft Line Break (Shift + Enter)

Line 1
Line 2

Hard Line Break (Enter)

Line 1

Line 2
