You have to tell Scribus *how* to hyphenate in Settings>Hyphenator in 
1.2.x or Prefs>Hyphenation in 1.3.x (sorry, I don't have immediate 
access to my Scribus box, so can't be sure with the newer version).

Basically, you can ask for full automatic or for hyphenation proposal 
at each word. Your choice.

There, you also set the language of hyphenation, the number of 
hyphens allowed in a row and the length of the smallest word to be 

*Then* you can choose to hyphenate or not any text frame of your 
choice. And in 1.3.x, you can even de-hyphenate (which is great).
