Discretionary hyphens do not seem to work
I can’t get discretionary hyphens to work in Illustrator CC 23.0.2, either by shift-command-- or with Type->Insert Special Character->Hyphens and Dashes->Discretionary Hyphen. Whether Hyphenate is turned on or off for the paragraph does not matter. Language does not seem to make a difference either.
Only the hyphens added by Illustrator itself are obeyed.
Discretionary hyphens are still broken in v25 (CC2021).
1. Make a text box, with some text in it. Oh no, a word is hyphenating in a bad spot!
2. Add discretionary hyphen in the correct spot
3. Nothing happens... Word still breaking in the wrong spot... :(

I'm trying to use discretionary hyphens as well. They seem to take effect for like half a second before it reverts to breaking my word somewhere else. It's really weird.
Hypenation in ai seems broken.
Please address this ADOBE!
