Description Ulrich Windl 2019-09-10 09:46:53 UTC
Impress (Draw) only allows a global setting for language and hyphenation.
It would be much more useful, if language and hyphenation were a style property.
Comment 1 Thomas Lendo 2019-09-20 07:02:25 UTC
In Writer, language is part of character (and technically also paragraph) styles. Adding Regina Henschel who knows Draw better to answer if this is possible.
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2019-10-29 12:06:20 UTC
Besides the technical question, what is the scenario/use case that requires different languages and hyphenations in one presentation/drawing?
Comment 3 Ulrich Windl 2019-10-29 12:34:41 UTC
Use case: A German presentation quoting English slides or phrases. Any slides or drawing dealing with translation issues.

Test Hyphenation in graphic style

Technically it is possible.
The attached document has a style "WithHyphenation" with the attribute fo:hyphenate="true" and a style "NoHyphenation" with the attribute fo:hyphenate="false".
Apply one or the other style to a text box will turn hyphenation on/off.

The problem is in the UI:
The icon of command "Hyphenation" does not follow on/off in its state.
There exists no option, to remove the direct paragraph style on the content text, if you have set it by any operation.

I have edit the file itself to remove the unwanted direct paragraph style on the content text.

Looks to me that we can put this to New.

I expect hyphenation to work depending on the language (paragraph/character style > font), and AFAICS it works like this in Writer.
You can also define the font language in Impress, though per Character and not Paragraph. And after manually adding <style:text-properties fo:hyphenate="true"/> to the raw file, it is possible to switch hyphenation on/off via tools > language.

So it's not a UX issue (admitted that the workflow is inconvenient) but clearly a bug.
