With manual hyphenation, you have more control over what is hyphenated and how it is hyphenated. You can
select which parts of the document are hyphenated and where a hyphen appears in specific words. This is a

Automatic hyphenation inserts optional hyphens. An optional hyphen is a hyphen that Word uses only when a
word or a phrase appears at the end of a line. If the word or phrase moves to a different position because
of editing, the optional hyphen is removed.

objects, you can easily perform this action using the Clipboard and the ^c wildcard.
