I am working on a book of English essays and I am having trouble with the  
hyphenation feature of Scribus  Many times it hyphenates a word in  
the wrong place and I do not see a way to correct it.  The smart hyphen  
feature does not seem to work in my instance of Scribus  running under  
FreeBSD.  Neither the hot key for smart hyphen works nor is it shown on the  
relevant menu.  Yet, there it is clearly in the manual.  Why is there this  
discrepancy?  Have I not configured the program properly?  I also have  
Scribus installed on a Windows 7 machine, both and and there  
is no smart hyphen in either of those versions.  Any suggestions on how best  
to correct a mis-hyphened word in Scribus without a smart hyphen?

Much obliged.
