Word Breaks for Nerds

Daniel Jalkut:

For most people, the “Standard” setting is probably the right choice. But computer programers are far more likely to encounter words that are separated by syntactic characters such as periods, colons, etc. For us, it makes more sense to have the system pause at these word breaks than to breeze right by them.

Switching to “English (United States, Computer)” takes effect after relaunching.
