In polish language one always has to use the non-breaking spaces (typing ~) after each single character (a, z, u, w) which is followed by any word. I'm using TeXShop as a front-end software to my TeX Live 2007 distribution. Is there any way to tell TeXShop to introduce a tilde automatically (e g by hitting the SPACE key + something combination) after every single character instead of typing it manually ? I've tried to look for this feature in TexShop preferences but I could not find anything. If not is there any other front-end software for TeX which has this feature ?

Do you mean `a word' must be typed as `a~word' for ALL single characters before ANY word? If true this sounds like a good candidate for some Find&Replace regex. (Sorry, I'm not that good at that sort of thing.)

Good Luck,
