Hyphenate Problem: Does not work at all
« on: January 23, 2013, 08:22:47 pm »
Hi!

I have a very strange problem: Currently, I can't get hyphenate to work: I have installed fedora 18 from scratch and wanted to hyphenate a new document, but clicking on hyphenate text (in the Extras menu) does not hyphenate at all. To the contrary: Old documents, where (under fedora 16) the text was hyphenated, it de-hyphenates the text if i click on "hyphenate text". I have no clue, what the issue is here. I tried it with version 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 and it's the same. No errors are shown, nothing.

Any clues?

According to Wikipedia you are probably experiencing a lack of «syllabification». Is that so?
Have you first consulted the Manual? You can probably find the solution there.

Running Scribus on Arch Linux in Version 1.4.2. from the official arch repos, I had the same problem.

I de-installed this version and build V. 1.5 from SVN, now everything works as expected.

They seem to work in Windows7 running 1.4.2, but not as expected. I typed some text in a small box, then increased font size and at one point I got a hyphen. So it just isn't breaking when it should.
