Separating hyperlinks & embedded topics with a non-breaking space - On Premises: 2022.R3

Embedded topics

When content consists of a hyperlink followed by an embedded topic (where the hyperlink and the embedded topic are on the same line and would usually be separated by a space), the best practice is to use a non-breaking space instead of an ordinary space.

  • Using a space: When you use an ordinary space between the hyperlink and the embedded topic, the space is removed when the topic is opened in quick-editing mode and Review. This results in the hyperlink being followed by the embedded topic without a space between.
  • Using a non-breaking space: Insert a non-breaking space between the hyperlink and the embedded topic rather than an ordinary space. The non-breaking space is used when the topic is opened in quick-editing mode and Review.

To Insert a Non-breaking Space:

  1. In Author, add the hyperlink to the topic.
  2. On the Edit tab click Insert > Non-breaking Space.
