Currently, afaik, there's no way to automatically hyphenate text in shapes in draw. The same goes for shapes and drawings in Impress. This can lead to really ugly text formatting if shapes are used in conjunction with justified text alignment. Therefore, I believe that auto-hyphenation would really improve the quality of the drawings produced via draw and impress. Thank you for your consideration!

You can add the hyphenation icon to a toolbar. You find it in the category "Options". Then when in text edit mode switch it on. You cannot set it in object mode (=green handles) but only in edit mode (=thick dash border).
