I contacted customer support with the following:
“Is there a way to make it so my words are carried to the next line as a whole word instead of being hyphenated and split between two lines? This is happening in the entry view, not the editor. I don’t recall this being a thing way back but it seems to be a thing now and I would like to make it not a thing. 😆 Thank you so much for your time and assistance! 🏻”
The chat bot said there is a way in app customization settings to accomplish this but I could not find it, so I requested a human operator and they asked me to file a bug report here.
