I do not desire to use automatic hyphenation in LibreOffice Writer. As such, I don’t want to think about it when I am starting a new Writer document. Is there a way to permanently turn this off - disable auto-hyphenation - some default profile setting that can be adjusted, so that this annoying “feature” goes and stays away?
Writer: How can I permanently turn off automatic hyphenation, so that the default setting is "Off" whenever starting a new document?
may the answer to this question Turned off auto-hyphenation, KEEPS TURNING BACK ON solves your issue.
(The key is to create a new default template)
