Long URLs can be problematic, especially in multi-column layouts: they don't fit the type measure and cause the story to become permanently overset. The URL Breaking event script increases readability by ensuring that long URLs intelligently break across lines, such as recommended by the Chicago Manual of Style (typically before punctuation and without adding hyphens).
To intelligently break URLs we must first be able to match them, for which we use John Gruber's public domain improved, liberal RegEx for matching URLs with some small adaptations. After finding them we insert custom break points according to the rules outlined by the Chicago Manual of Style.
If different URL breaking rules are required for your purposes, please reach out to your Typefi Solutions Consultant or Business Development Manager about developing a custom version of this script.
The URL Breaking script is a SpillEnd event. Your workflow should be configured to run SpillEnd scripts, and the script should be placed in the SpillEnd folder on the InDesign Server. There is no configuration table needed in the template.
