Default Controlling line breaking when using Shrink Text on Overflow


I have a text box I've set to shrink text on overflow and have merged a data file to it.

Moving through the records I can see it largley works OK, but sometimes the text breaks up in the middle of a word:

I've set the spaces within the fields to be non-breaking to prevent word wrapping as I need all 3 lines to stay as 3 lines - I just want Publisher to reduce the font to the size required to get everything in and not break the words up.

Is this possible?
