What it does

It lists all hyphenated words in the log file as well as in the file with the extension .uhy

How to use

A typical workflow is:

  • run final document
  • put the correctly hyphenated words into a text file (format: each word separated with space or on a single line, only whitespace matters as a separator)
  • add that file to the whitelist (as given above)
  • optionally use the option mark to make the unknown hyphenated words visible in the PDF file
