Problem mit Silbentrennung - Hyphenation Error German


Recommended Posts

The German word "Glückseligkeit" gets hyphenated incorrectly - see screenshots. Nothing more to add. Different settings didn't accomplish anything. Happy fixing. 🙂


PS: for those versed in German, the content of the paragraph is of paramount importance. English natives may refer to chapter 15, point 5 of the Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel.

Should it be hyphenated as Glück|se|lig|keit rather than as Glücks|elig|keit?

This word isn't in the Hunspell hyphenation dictionary so it's being hyphenated according to defined patterns which may explain why it's not working well. AFAIK, this isn't something Affinity can fix since they rely on the Hunspell dictionaries which they don't distribute. Other apps that use Hunspell should produce the same results.

I think adding this word to the hyphenation dictionary would require entering something like this: gl¸ck1se1lig1keit

I gave it a quick try and it didn't work, even after a restart, so perhaps somebody else with more experience will offer a suggestion on how to customize the hyphenation dictionary.
