Description larrybradley 2020-06-13 14:13:12 UTC
Description:
When attempting to "un-hyphenate" an automatically hyphenated word, such as a formal name, after invoking the Shift-Control-Minus Sign combination a - is left in the resulting new word. Any attempt to deleted the dash causes the word to revert back to its original hyphenation. Example: "Reichel" is a formal name. Auto-hyphenation breaks it into Re-ichel. When I place my cursor inside the hyphenated word and invoke Shift-Control-Minus Sign, the result is "R-eichel". If I then deleted the dash, auto-hyphenation then hyphenates the word again so that it is now Re-ichel. It's a circular error for which there appears to be no fix.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select auto-hyphenated word.
2. Invoke Shift-Control-Minus Sign keys.
3. Delete dash sign (-) in resulting word, which causes word to again automatically hyphenate. 

Actual Results:
Instead of returning an un-hyphenated word, the program returns the word with a dash mark in a different place. Deleting the new dash mark re-hyphenates the word back to the original hyphenation.

Expected Results:
A word that is no longer hyphenated, and in fact is protected against further automatic hyphenation. 


Reproducible: Always

There does not appear to be a command for un-hyphenating words. The keyboard shortcut you give just inserts more hyphens. The Shift does nothing in the combination.
