The field that stores text is omitting the rest of the text after the '-' character is typed in.

smaller example .odb
Short version: I think that the problem is just the display of MEMO
In the attached embedded_HSQLDB.odb, Table1 includes fields
f1 : MEMO
f2 : VARCHAR
f3 : CHARACTER (fixed)
As the column widths in data view are adjusted to be narrower than the
stored data, the program always truncates f1 at a space or hyphen.
The result looks neat, hiding the fact of the truncated display.
Fields f2 and f3 are less neat, even truncating the display in the
middle of a letter. The truncation is obvious to the viewer.
I am setting status NEW and adjusting the summary according to what I
I am setting see-also bug 79026. It differs from the present bug in ...
(*) different backend
(*) update, not just display
(*) form rather than data view
I see the problem as far back as Version: 18.104.22.168.alpha1+ Build ID:
fc8f44e... . I am setting version to "4.2 all versions".
Is it possible that LibreOffice think about deploying a web application similar to Mirosoft Onedrive, a web-based office tool?
Seems the GUI interprets "-" as a hyphen if it must produce a line-break. If you will change the width of the column the other text will appear. Also changing the height of the column will work.
I couldn't see it ever worked in another way. LO 22.214.171.124 and also LO 126.96.36.199 will show the same behavior. (Tested with OpenSUSE 42.1 64bit rpm Linux)
Showing all the content of a MEMO-field in the table-GUI shouldn't be allowed with automatic row-height, because the content of such a field could be very large. Only MEMO allows to save line-breaks and paragraphs. So the automatic row-height will only show the height of one row.
A possible enhancement will be to show there is more content with a (red) triangle like it is shown in fields of the report-builder.
Other enhancement will be: Don't let "-" be interpreted as a hyphen. But how should set hyphens instead?
I will set this one to ENHANCEMENT and the version to LO 188.8.131.52 Couldn't test here, but seems it is been inherited from OOo.
