1. Doubleclick Ole text object. If you want to test function
   click before "Text" and type blanks:

@Rainer: Because I read today issue 63234 it should be handled together.
Please test the following:
Create text with unbreakable and optional hyphens in writer. Copy the text into clipboard and paste it into the writer document by using the different formats in Paste Special.

Following issues seems are related (not need to be a duplicate):
issue 90566
issue 22263
issue 97941
issue 19894
issue 78122
issue 16496

Maybe there should be a meta issue (TASK) for hyphens?

(In reply to mroe from comment #2)
Although I also think (but don't know) that most of these problems have different roots, it is a very plausible approach to do a cleanup in this area, may be a little more general as a "Formatting Mark" cleanup. Can you please create a meta task issue to collect these problems?
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-04-03 20:43:33 UTC
Also non-breaking space is affected
Comment 5 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-04-03 20:49:39 UTC
No-Width formatting marks not affected
Optional hyphen also affected

Version due to report
Comment 6 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-06-03 15:37:42 UTC
I see the same for paste to calc, so this one might be a Writer or General problem
