# No-Width Optional Break - how to?

 Wiki Link: [discussion:571501]
 wr00m Nov 7, 2014 at 8:17 AM Edited Nov 7, 2014 at 8:35 AM In order to allow long words to line-break gracefully, I want to use "No-Width Optional Break" characters in my DocX-generated document. More specifically, I want paths to break after slashes when necessary. Usually in Word I do this: Insert > Symbol > Special Characters > No-Width Optional Break Since this is unicode character 200C (right?), I tried inserting '\u200C' in my path strings, but the docx turns out weird (for example, "c:\tmp\a.txt" becomes "c:\\.txt"). How can I accomplish this with DocX? How does one usually handle special characters?
