My assumption is that Chris is looking for help on when to hyphenate compound adjectives (like 'the
red-brown dog' but 'the big brown dog'), similar to how LO has rules about when to hyphenate words
at the ends of lines. Hyphenation of compound adjectives involves a lot of judgment and personal
taste. As far as I know, there's nothing about it in LO.

I'm not sure exactly what the problem is. I hyphenate things all the time with no problems.
If Regina's suggestion is what you need, you can also insert the non-breaking hyphen with
Ctrl-Shift-Hyphen (much faster for me, anyway, then having to move my hand to the mouse).

The only hyphenation ability in LO Write I'm seeing is for word
splitting and end of a line.
What I'd really like is help with compound adjectives. Does anything
like that exist in LO Writer?
