Hyphen-minus changed to soft hyphen in PDF

Previous topic - Next topic


Hi all!

I'm in the middle of building a catalogue of products with Scribus 1.5.3 and I need a bit of help. Things work perfectly smooth in Scribus. On exporting the file to PDF, though, my hyphen characters in the item numbers (format is 1234-56-7890) change from U+002D (HYPHEN-MINUS) to U+00AD (SOFT HYPHEN). It *looks* pretty much the same, but unfortunately this makes the PDF catalogue unsearchable by item number.

All fonts are embedded, and I've also tested with 1.4.6 and 1.5.4svn, to no avail.

Is there any way of stopping Scribus from converting this character? Or am I simply going about it the wrong way? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
