You said that you downloaded and installed an English dictionary.
Not all of the dictionaries out there have the "hyphen" ability.

Where did you get the dictionary from?
Are you sure it has the hyphenation ability?

This American English extension does have the hyphen ability

You will find British and Canadian versions here.

It's interesting you have that problem.

I have found that Apache OpenOffice does not properly hyphenate US English, but that LibreOffice does.

Sorry I don't have a solution for you, but it's interesting that the problem would crop up in LibO.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Improper English hyphenation

I've used OOo forever, and then jumped to LO, with Brazilian Portuguese
and English dictionaries/hyphenation. Recently the English hyphenation
has switched, apparently, to Portuguese. I've changed everything to
English I can think of, have downloaded and installed the English
dictionary etc., done all I know to do. Now I'm at a loss. Any ideas?

I'm not so much of a newby, have even edited and published a book in
OOo, doing cover and all.
