Description meywer 2007-06-14 17:22:49 UTC
Semiautomatic hyphenation (Extras-Sprache-Silbentrennung) sometimes offers a
selection of possible hyphen-points, user can choose a point further to the left
(closer to the begin of the word).
But user unfotunately cannot choose a new hyphen-point, which OO doesn't offer.

Comment 3 meywer 2007-08-25 10:12:54 UTC
since in the attached file the hyphenation proposed by OO are alright

but if I would like to define (wrong) new hyphenpoints e.g. Ka-tzenbrei or
Att-raktionen it's not possible i the autohyphendialog

(and there are examples when OO doesn't know the right hyphenpoints)
Comment 4 meywer 2008-08-13 19:39:43 UTC
OO wants me to hyphenate:

bein-hal-tet, but good is only be-inhal-tet
al-ter-ss-pe-zi-fi-sche, but good is only al-ters-spe-zi-fi-sche
Tex-to-ber-flä-chen, but good is only Text-ober-fläche

I want to set hyphenpoints (insert soft-hyphen) in the hyphenation-dialog.
