No, the pauses can be inserted only between sentences. Go to Options > Settings > Pauses and enter a value in the Pauses between sentences and Pauses between paragraphs fields. The value of 0 means no pause. Press the F1 key to open to user guide for further information.

Yes, there is a way

Using the prononciation correction tool, add a silence to that punctiation mark's prononciation.

I wanted Balabolka to pause when encountering "—" in the text so I edited the prononciation ( Ctrl+P ) to define in the dictionnairy:

—=< silence msec="400"/>
[no space between < and silence, but without it it doen't show in my post]

and now Balabolka makes a small pause rather than going right to the next word...

I didn't understand, what did you mean with "ctlr+alt+x to add pause between text (words)"?
Where did you use it in Balabolka?
