I've got a name 'Bruinsma' that LO wants to hyphenate between the 'u' 
and the 'i'. I'm trying to get it to hyphenate between the 'n' and the 
's'. LO 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.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I'd like to point out
that in traditional typesetting proper names are not hyphenated. 

I have LO on Xubuntu and Ctrl - does add a hyphen in 'Bruinsma'
as you wanted it to do. And the name does break on the optional hyphen
when I add text to force it beyond the end of the line.

Do I assume correctly that otherwise hyphenation is working as expected?
