Adobe Illustrator is a powerful tool used by professional and amateur graphic designers alike. In Illustrator, it is easy to insert and stylise blocks of text for design projects. When words run over the lines they are on, Illustrator is set to hyphenate them and carry them on to the next line. However, if you do not want hyphens in your text, it is easy to change this preset.
