|Summary||0013868: Double conditional hyphens|
|Description||Since 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" !)
