    And it’s done finally, in the latest Beta build.

    All NEW documents will now have Hyphenate disabled by default.

    To use this feature please delete all files in a specific folder and relaunch Illustrator. This effort is required only for first time, for Illustrator to fetch updated copies of default document profiles.

    • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator 28.1.0 BETA Settings/<language>/New Document Profiles
    • Win: C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 28.1.0 BETA Settings\<language>\x64\New Document Profiles

    However, Illustrator won’t make changes to custom presets you have in EXISTING documents though.

    To make this option to get turned off for them as well, you’d have to update a [Normal Paragraph Style] in Paragraph Styles panel on your own. To do that:

    1. create a new text object, keep it selected,

    2. press [Normal Paragraph Style] in Paragraph Styles panel,

    3. open Paragraph panel, disable Hyphenate,

    4. open Paragraph Styles panel again, and execute Redefine Paragraph Style command…

    Might be too difficult, but what if the hyphenation were content-aware? If text was below a certain point size, (12 or 14) then it might get hyphenation turned on by default, but over that size (likely a heading or larger format text) then it would be unchecked.
