Just for what it's worth, using LibreOffice Build ID
14ed55896fdfcb93ff437b85c4f3e1923d2b1409 under Linux Mint 17 (32 bit) I
cannot replicate the problem.

Hi :)
I think you'd be amazed how much easier it is to report a 2nd bug.

The first time there is stuff such as registering on the bug-tracker
website and a bit of faffing around plus the whole idea is a bit unfamiliar
and there are unexpected things to distract you.  The 2nd time you don't
need to register and you realise that you can ignore most of the

I must admit i've never had a problem with hyphenations except in MS
Publisher.  Similarly with most of the problems.  Also i find i don't need
any Extensions.  It might help if we knew which OS you are using (Win8, Xp,
Ubuntu, Mac or whatever else) and also which version of LO.
Apols and regards from
Tom :)

Hi Joel:

Thanks much for the response.

I decided this morning to take a little time and reproduce the "hyphen"
problem I discussed step-by-step so that I could file a usable bug

Here's how things went, and why I've decided to abandon that quest.

I started LibreOffice in the normal manner (i.e. clicking the icon).
Before I had made any selection, a notification titled "Updates for
extensions available; Click the icon for more information" appeared in
upper right corner. Clicking this displayed the "Extension Update" dialog

In my particular case, it spends a few seconds and then lists one update:
[o] LanguageTool. Open source language checker Version 2.6.

I use this, and have kept it updated for some time, so I clicked on
"Release Notes" and it opened my browser and I could see what changes had
been made.

So, naturally, I clicked on the "Install" button. This immediately showed
a completed progress bar at the top of the dialog box. In the "Result"
panel, nothing was shown, and the [OK] button remained inactive (greyed
out) for longer than I thought normal, with no messages suggesting why,
what it was doing.

Consulting the help provided the suggestion that some extensions require
root access, so I closed LibreOffice (still obviously not having gotten
very far with duplicating the "hyphen" problem), executed "sudo
libreoffice4.3" from the command line and got the exact same behavior.
[OK] button never (well, at least as long as it took me to eat breakfast)
became active and no error messages or other informative text ever
appeared. I realize that 4.3, although out of beta, is not considered
"stable" but a couple 4.2 bugs in the repository version of LibreOffice
affect me particularly - a long story but not relevant here).

Running LibreOffice from the command line, however, turned out to be a
HUGE MISTAKE, as the next time I attempted to run LibrOffice from the
I encountered "Welcome to LibreOffice - Use the sidebar to open or
create a
file." All references to previously used files were gone. All UI
preferences were gone, etc. etc. This is beyond annoying, of course, and
wasted another twenty minutes or so putting things back to the way I want
them, but I suppose that's the price one pays for free software.

At any rate, still attempting to pop things off the stack in the order I
had put them there, I manually downloaded the Language extension and
installed it from the extension manager, so at least that's out of the
(although I haven't used it yet, so who knows?). I then proceeded to
reproduce the "hyphen" bug. It's there, and it's consistent, and it
seem to be font dependent (at least with the few I tried). Then I noticed
the clock!

My point is that, in attempting to document one bug, I ran into another.
So now maybe I need to document two bugs. And then I remembered all the
hassles the last time I submitted a bug. No. "Not gonna happen" as they

This is all fun, of course, but sadly I'm living in an alternate universe
(some call it "the real world") and realize that I've already spent more
than an hour and a helf doing this stuff and need to get back to actually
USING the software rather than particpating in the debugging process. No
offense, but if you or any other developers can make use of any of these
comments, be my guest.

Again, thanks for the response.

Go ahead and file and then someone from QA will attempt to reproduce.
you report attach a simple document that shows the issue and make sure to
give easy reproducible steps. Feel free to cc me on the bug and I'll try
confirm this evening after I leave the office.

I recently installed Version: Build ID:
08ebe52789a201dd7d38ef653ef7a48925e7f9f7 on 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04, and
a problem that I'm pretty sure I had seen in some version of LO back in
3.x series, but which seems to have returned.

When printing documents with hyphenation, the hyphen is placed over the
letter on the line rather than next to it. If I use Print Preview, the
display is fine. If I export the file as a pdf and print from there, the
printout is fine. The problem only exists when printing directly from

Has anyone else noticed this? I hate filing a bug if no one else can
it, but as having old bugs re-appear in later versions is disconcerting,
thought I should check.
