[Scribus] creating / improving a hyphenator?
Tue May 16 17:54:19 CEST 2006
Thanks for your reply!
I can see now that some issues do come from the OOo side. Others do
not. I'll try to file in a bug report for the important ones as soon
as I know what is relevant.
The new features sound exactly as what I personally would need to feel
fine when working with hyphenation.
