[scribus] Forced hyphenation?

Well, strange though...

The dictionary is correct: German

What I tried is "Geschützter Bindestrich" (Locked hypen?), but to no 
avail. A "soft" one is not available.

Then I switched off the hyphenation and switched it on again: Now it 
would divide after "Wirt-" and put the rest on the new line.

Then I added a simple "-" after "Wirtschafts", and BINGO! Now it divides 
at my "-" and did not add any other hyphens anymore...

Thanks for pushing me on the right way ;)
