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 still broken in v. 26.
Same issue here!
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!
