    Missing hyphens at ends of rows

    Is there an agreed-upon procedure for what we are to do when words are split across rows and the hyphen is definitely missing, as opposed to being partially visible? I know that, generally, we are to leave things exactly as they are, but presumably not adding in the hyphen will mean that a word isn't searchable. Not so much an issue if it's a random adjective, but sometimes it's a place name or a person's name.

    I would think adding the hyphen is sound practice and in keeping with the guidlelines at https://help.nla.gov.au/trove/digiti...ion-guidelines and "obviously missing letters".

    That's what I was thinking. Will add it unless I hear otherwise at some point
