Bug status


No new items.

To be solved/investigated by Divvun

Div Pld Description
621 xxx other hyphenator bugs. PB: not as much incorrect as well as weird-looking.
630 xxx Word (prefix) with hyphen is rejected - and suggested
652 xxx UPPERCASE-typos only get acronym-suggestions: VARI -> no sugg, vARI -> VÁRI as sugg; consequence of the sugg. mechanism, unresolvable
581 xxx consonant doubling => actual problem is suggestions with hyphens (split compound type); these can be blocked as suggestions, and thus be removed (they would still be recognised, though)

Under investigation by Polderland

Div Pld Description
645 xxx borgguhan-gihppagis gets the hyphen on the next line

Priority list

  1. Hyphenator for Microsoft Office 2008 / Mac
  2. Installer for Microsoft Office 2008 / Mac
  3. M+S request letter from the Divvun project
  4. InDesign proofing tools for Windows

Next meeting

Next meeting (30.9.) at 10.00 Dutch/Norwegian time.
