Description hwoarang 2003-08-27 15:59:43 UTC
Guys, I don't know if this issue refer only to pt-br language or to all spellcheck tool, but you know what to do: When I'm spellcheking a file the Ooo find the word "palavra", e.g., and ask me what to do. I add the word to my dic, 'cause the word is correct. In the next line, the Ooo find the word "Palavra", e.g., and ask me again what to do. Note that second word have just a first character in capital letter, but is the same word. I think the Ooo should ignore these cases. _________________________________________________ Using: Ooo 1.1 RC3 English Windows 98 SE Brazilian Portuguese PC AMD Athlon XP 1700+ 256 RAM

This is a generic problem where the spellchecker does not automatically know that "Mizspelled" is the same word as "mizspelled", and therefore when I accept the first it does not automatcially accpe tthe second.

Why I can't vote for this issue ?

Hi, This is NOT a lingucomponent issue. The internal dictionary is not a source of suggestions for MySpell. So I am changing this to the sw project in the hopes someone there can figure out a solution. Kevin

HI->TL: The Options in Writing Aids (Here Capitalization Check) should also valid for user dictionary.
Comment 5 thomas.lange 2003-10-10 09:08:12 UTC
It looks like if - either the user dictionry should accept a word with starting capital letter if the word is correct (according to the user-dictionaries) if it where written with a lowercase letter. - or for such a word with a matching lowercase entrie the the error flag shoul indicate a capitalization error. The latter being usually ignored if the word starts with a capital letter because the word may be at the beginning of a sentence. The second solution may implictly also fix the case with using the respective flag from the options.

Time is short. Can't be solved for OO 2.0.
Comment 7 suripally 2005-02-04 19:03:26 UTC
Replicated the bug under both Redhat Linux and Windows XP, in OOo 1.1.0 and 1.1.4. I add the word "sateesh" in the dictionary of Spellchecker. Next time when "Sateesh" is found, the Spellchecker cannot distinguish. This is related to issue 18737. This appears to be the bug in OOo 1.1.x.

There is a typo in the prev comment. This bug actually has some relation to issue 25786.

We’re 3 years later, OOo 3.2 and this still is an issue… A suggestion which makes sense once this is handled properly: when adding a capitalized word to the user dictionary, ask whether it should be added capitalized or not.

Spam has entered Bugzilla as well? I’m quite curious how the previous comment is going to be reacted on by moderators here. Or does that guy need mediation?
Comment 19 hogwaump 2013-08-23 14:58:17 UTC
This one has been hanging around for ten years, and it ought to be an easy fix, since this feature works right with dictionary modules, just not in user's custom dictionary.
