Is there a way to insert hyphens between a string of words in Word or other applications? tx

Thanks. I just saw this.

I found an AppleScript that does this too:

Sub HyphenateSelection()
Dim rng As Range
Set rng = Selection.Range
rng.Text = Replace(rng.Text, " ", "-")
End Sub

By the way, this app is great for these sorts of general-purpose text transformations: GitHub - amebalabs/Esse: Swiss army knife of text transformation for iOS and macOS

It provides a command line tool /Applications/, so it can be scripted by KM.
