Description Ulrich Moser 2014-04-02 21:16:57 UTC
When using a dash to combine words like in four-eyes principle where the word four together with the dash would fit on the previous line the whole string four-eyes is wrapped to the next line. This was not the case in 3.x versions of LO and should still work. Inserting an additional blank on lines where the correct wrapping should occur is not a solution because with a modification of the surrounding text the line wrap might be at another location and then the above example would read four- eyes principle.

Cannot reproduce in the normal OS.
What is that 'dash' character exactly?
Comment 2 Ulrich Moser 2014-04-03 05:21:56 UTC
It is that character that you would expect it to. be when you press the dash-key on your keyboard, the one used in the word dash-key. This is supposed to be a breaking character which means that a line break (text wrap) can occure after that character. 
BTW what do you mean by "normal" OS. I suppose Ubuntu Linux is quite normal.
Comment 3 Ulrich Moser 2014-04-03 05:24:52 UTC
Just take my comment, paste it to Writer and insert words bevor four-eyes until it is wrapped.
Comment 4 Ulrich Moser 2014-04-24 13:57:19 UTC
WORKSFORME is not an acceptable solution. It does not work with the most recent version Version: Build-ID: 420m0(Build:3) on Ubuntu Linux 12.04 LTS 64 bit. 

I expect from you that you try to reproduce it on that same system. I tested it with German and English text and the behaviour is the same in both.
Comment 5 Ulrich Moser 2014-04-24 13:58:41 UTC
Can anyone reproduce this bug?
