Description mathieu_bonnet 2008-06-18 11:16:17 UTC

I'm writing a book. I have long chapter names, including some with very long
words, which I'd like to split, with soft hyphens, followed by line breaks (so I
can break them where I want, for proper esthetic control), so the hyphens do not
appear, when I insert the chapter name as a field, on a single line (for
example, at the top of each page).

The problem is, the soft hyphen does not appear, before the line break.


- start typing a word;
- insert a soft hyphen (Insert -> Formatting Mark -> Optional hyphen (Ctrl+-));
- insert a line break (Insert -> Manual Break -> Line Break -> Ok (Shift+Enter));
- finish typing the word;
- preview printing, or export as a PDF document.


- No hyphen is visible, before the line break.

Thanks in advance to everyone who will work on this.

CHecked on OOo310m9, WIndows Vista - no hyphen is visible if insert a Manual 
line break. If to insert soft hyphens and then some words before this word to 
cause the line break, hyphen is visible

As given in description.
Even without a line break, hyphen in invisible despite Tools - Options... - OOo-dev Writer/Web - Formatting Aids -> Display of Custom hyphens is checked.
