 I've got a name 'Bruinsma' that LO wants to hyphenate between the 'u' and

 won't let me. I go to tools->language->hyphenation with the word
 highlighted, but there's no way I can get it to move the hyphen. If I put
 my cursor where I want it to hyphenate and click 'hyphenate', it just
 closes the dialog and leaves the hyphen in the original place. There also
 doesn't seem to be a way to tell LO not to hyphenate that word at all.

 As I read the manuals, I should be able to just use 'ctrl plus -' to
 manually place a hyphen. But this doesn't work either.

 Using LO Version:

 What am I missing?

Eric: If you use 'ctrl plus -' to insert an optional hyphen before the 'u', does it take effect? If you put it after the place where LO already wants to hyphenate, it makes sense that it won't have an effect, unless you turn off automatic hyphenation in the paragraph style.


This sort of thing is _exactly_ why I won't use LO or AOO!


Doug: So why exactly are you on this list?
