Description M. S. Rosyidi 2018-11-17 07:56:46 UTC
Hyphenation for Indonesian language is not working even the Indonesian Dictionary was installed
Comment 1 Roman Kuznetsov 2018-11-17 14:39:17 UTC
Rizal, can you check it, please?
Comment 2 M. S. Rosyidi 2018-11-18 01:48:10 UTC
I have chosen the Indonesian Dictionary to be installed during the installation of LibreOffice 6.1.3.

I have created the document and set the default style as below:

1. set the language for Western Text Font as Indonesia
2. set the alignment to Justified
3. set the Hyhenation to Automatically

I Write some texts in Indonesian but I found the hyphenation is not working as expected.

After saving and closing the document, I check the directory of the dictionary in C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\share\extensions\dict-id and open the dictionaries.xcu. In the dictionaries.xcu there is a calling to hyph_id_ID.dic file (line 18) but the called file is missing from C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\share\extensions\dict-id.

I copy the hyph_id_ID.dic file from an extension named Kamus Bahasa Indonesia Version 2.0 by Benitius Brevoort (https://extensions.libreoffice.org/extensions/indonesian-dictionary-kamus-indonesia-by-benitius) to the directory and open the document again and the hyphenation is working as expected.

Hello M. S. Rosyidi,
A new major release of LibreOffice is available since this bug was reported.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice
from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
