Summary0001475: Bad hyphenating implementation
DescriptionAfter hyphenating, a 65k Scribus file (A4 format with 10k character text block) grew up to 1.9 MB. Almost every single character was maked with ITEXT. Working with Scribus becames a pain due slow response.

Additional InformationWill be a better aproach hyphenate with soft hyphen character (U+00AD) instead signed by ITEXT CSTYLE 8th bit attribute. More about soft hyphen: [^]
TagsNo tags attached.

This is a known issue. The new format planned for 1.3 should alleviate the hyphenation problems, at least regarding how they're stored on disk.

There isn't much to be done about it in 1.2.x, unfortunately - there really isn't room to move on "better" hyphenation as far as I know.

it seems that hyphenating via Extras->Hyphenate Text works fine now (i have single ITEXT for 1 paragraph).

But "Hyphenate Text Automatically During Typing" in document setup doesn't work at all for me. Even worse: it seems that when it is working, it still creates dozens of ITEXTs. I think this option should be removed, or changed to just call Extras->Hyphenate Text automatically for new text frames.
