Description RGB 2017-07-08 09:00:24 UTC
Created attachment 134543 [details]
Sample file

On the attached document the paragraph style have automated hyphenation on. There is also a character style with a border applied to a portion of text on the last paragraph. As you can see, the character border breaks on the hyphen, which is not desirable. The hyphen should be considered as part of the word, not with a separated "box".

I see the same problem in Version:

with text in German.

If you write a manually soft hyphen (U+00AD), then the border is correct. A manually soft hyphen is written a true character to the file. The hyphen, which is inserted by the automatic hyphenation, exists only in the view. It is not written to file.
