Summary0001050: Greek Hyphenation
DescriptionA (Greek) word (in a Greek text) refused to be hyphenated. Pressing Ctrl+- had no effect (except for the disappearance of the cursor) so I selected the word and chose Extra > Hyphenate text. I waited forever without anything happening and when I clicked on the text frame, the text disappeared. I had to go back to page one and work back to the page I started from.
Additional InformationThe Greek hyphenation patterns seem to be problematic. Of course this is not a Scribus problem, but it would help if I knew the logic behind them so I could at least experiment.

Did you change the hyphenation language to Greek on properties palette with the text frame selected?

Sorry for the delay, but I couldn't compile the cvs to do the testing. Eventually I realized I had downloaded the 1.2 version into the 1.3 directory. Nobody's perfect.
Yes, the language is set all right. After testing it with a largish file (about 50 A4 pages) I can place the problem in the fact that when I try to hyphenate with page one selected, the result is instantaneous and impressively correct. When I try the same thing from page 2 (after closing and reopening the program and loading the same text from scratch), the process lasts a couple of seconds. When I try the same thing with page 23 selected, the text simply disappears and the process goes on forever. In one instance (which I was not able to reproduce), after about eight minutes of waiting (on a computer with an Athlon 2600+ processor) I tried to close the program, which popped up a crash message (sorry I can't remember it now). The cvs I used is the one I downloaded 3-4 days ago.
That's about it. If I can do anything else to help, I'll be glad to.

Can someone test this to see if this is still an issue ?

I wonder if this is fixed with CTL?

I'll message the Greek Translator on Transifex to see if they can test this issue.
