Inserts hyphens in words that are too long to fit at the end of a line.

LibreOffice searches the document and suggests hyphenation that you can accept or reject. If text is selected, the Hyphenation dialog works on the selected text only. If no text is selected, the Hyphenation dialog works on the whole document.
