Description Katrin 2019-05-06 17:14:49 UTC
the term "PsychKG" is short for "Psychisch Kranken Gesetz", a german book of laws. As a short cut it not will be seperate. It will now separate as "Psy-chKG". And if it has to be seperate, then as you speak as "Psych-KG", cause K and G is pronounced as Letters.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make a document and set the language as german
2.write "PsychKG" and make clear it comes to the and of the line, so it will be seperate

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
it's not to seperate, so it must be "PsychKG"

Reproducible: Always

@Dieter, can you reproduce this issue ?
Comment 2 Dieter 2019-06-11 05:55:41 UTC
I confirm it with

Version: (x64)
Build-ID: 2412653d852ce75f65fbfa83fb7e7b669a126d64
CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Windows 10.0; UI-Render: Standard; VCL: win; 
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE); UI-Sprache: de-DE
Calc: threaded

I also agree, that an abbreviation of a book of law shouldn't be separated, but I couldn't find an official rule for that. But Psy-chKG is wrong.
Comment 3 Thomas Lendo 2019-06-11 20:31:31 UTC
Maybe a rule that words with a majuscule in the middle of end of it won't be separated. Austrian examples: ArbVG, BarwertVO, ZahnFinAnpG.
Comment 4 Katrin 2019-06-13 21:25:29 UTC
@ Dieter Praas: Thanks for your agreement.
@ Thomas Lendo:  I just know the German books of law, but in the most cases there are more than one capital in one word without space. For exemple OWiG. And the most of it have also just one vowel - like the Y in PsychKG, VerschG, StPO. Maybe there's a way to make a rule, the program detects therms like that.

Dear Katrin,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
