# Soft hyphens not working in Writer 4.1.5.3 [closed]

The way I understand this document is that if I enter ctrl + -, I should get a soft hyphen that would break the word when needed. This is not happening. Some character is added, but the word is not broken even if needed. Only if I enter a hyphen that is always visible (-) the word breaks when the line ends. Is this supposed to be like this? How am I supposed to enter a soft hyphen, that would only appear as hyphen when word needs to be broken into two lines?

Using Windows 7, Writer 4.1.5.3.
