I am using automatic hyphenation for breaking text into paragraph. The text contains some hyperlinks which I would like to keep unbroken for readability (it is not clear if the hyphen is dash in the hyperlink or just a hyphen). Is there an option to disable breaking certain words? Or can I disable hyperlink hyphenation globally?

The characters in the hyperlink should be the hyphen-minus (U+002d) character.

Even taking this into account and with hyphenation turned on (and set to 2 characters) a hyperlink will only break at an existing hyphen (e.g., rather than break a lengthy non-hyphenated string (e.g., Can you edit your question to provide an example of how the hyperlinks are being broken?
