Description nbusch 2014-05-10 13:20:03 UTC
Problem description: 
In a word in small capitals automatic hyphenation does not work anymore. Manual hyphenation is possible.

Steps to reproduce:
When I insert several letters to a line in front of the word in small caps, it will always jump completely to the next line. When I change the word to normal (not small caps) then there is no problem with hyphenation. Tried in German, English and French.

Current behavior:
no automatic hyphenation

Expected behavior:
automatic hyphenation
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

Running LibreOffice x64 build ID 0c292870b25a325b5ed35f6b45599d2ea4458e77 on Windows 10 Pro.

I can add the automatic hyphenation doesn't work on text **formatted** as uppercase. Text **typed** as uppercase has the automatic hyphenation working correctly.
