Summary0013868: Double conditional hyphens
DescriptionSince conditional hyphens cant be seen sometimes, it happens the user insert more than once. This makes later editing sometime a bit strange (insert carret doesnt move anymore over conditionnal hyphens when moving it with keyboard arrows in the text). And there is no use in having more than one together.

So : Scribus could prevent inserting double conditional hyphens in a text.

Rq : Even without using the "hyphenation langage" setting, there are some other possible smart behaviours, that would require a little more awareness of the currently edited text context. For example, Scribus could also prevent inserting a conditional hypen next to a hyphen or to a space or to a punctuation mark or next to any cannot-be-in-word glyph... (unless there is some special meaning to this. I remember cezary had a patch that used such a 'syntax' to say "this word must not be hyphanated here" !)
