regex to fix up hyphenated words please
i want to auto-remove extra spaces in hyphenated words
i.e. change badly- spaced to badly-spaced.
not sure of the find +replace syntax.
I think I have to find [word boundary]- [wordboundary] then replace what I've found but without the space ?

Could be handy, but not automatic I think. There are cases when that kind of syntax is correct. At least in dutch it can be.

Try searching for "\b- \b" and replacing with "-" (no quotes in either case). According to the documentation, \b matches a word boundary, but no character (so you don't have to worry about it when replacing).
But, as Toxaris says, beware of things like "inter- and intramolecular bonds".
