Bookdesigner and LRF help please

I use Bookdesigner to generate LRF files for my Sony reader and have come across a snag. I find that in a line where there are two words joined by an emdash which together would not fit on the end of the line then the complete pair are pushed to a new line. Whereas it would look better if there was a break either before or after the emdash.

Eg

undecidedly— (line break)
whereupon

would look much better instead of

undecidedly—whereupon (on a new line leaving large gap at end of the previous line)

Whenever I ask for help with Bookdesigner I am often told that there are better and newer programs and formats to use but after years of experimenting with these I find that, for me, this combination is the winner. I am just an old fashioned girl at heart.

I know HarryT wrote a very helpful guide on using Bookdesigner but this particular problem is not mentioned there so I would be grateful if there are any Bookdesigner diehards out there who might be able to help

Use the emdash with a space:

Thank you Pablo that is a good idea and I may do that from now on. However, I have hundreds of books like this and I don't want to go back and edit them all to put the spaces in the correct places. I was hoping for a Bookdesigner option so that I could just regenerate them.

I don't think that's possible...
The problem is that the Reader software considers "undecidedly—whereupon" as a single word.

You could just use a search/replace in the books.
