How to Disable Hyphenation in KOReader

Hyphenation is the division of a word by use of a hyphen. It is commonly used in connecting compound words which are made up of two or more words such as know-how, check-in, mother-in-law etc.

In publishing, hyphenation is additionally used to break a word at the end of a line on a page. KOReader replicates this behaviour by default when reading e-books on a computer and supported e-readers like PocketBook, Kobo, Kindle etc.

This usually happens with reflowable e-book formats like EPUB and Mobi. However, text on fixed page formats like PDF is typically not hyphenated.

If you’d prefer to disable this default hyphenation when reading an e-book, here’s how to go about it:

  1. Open an e-book on KOReader on your device.
  2. Go to the Document menu and select the Typography rules option.
  3. Select the Hyphenation option.
  4. Remove the check-mark from the Enable hyphenation option. That’s it.
