Description rblackeagle 2004-04-24 20:45:09 UTC
Standard (at least in the US) is for a quote to follow a punctuation mark (such
as "... George." rather than "... George".)  A result of this is that a sentence
beginning after the quotation mark is NOT capitalized, which suggests to me that
." is not recognized as the end of a sentence OR it the Autocorrection is
disabled by the quotes.

In any case, this is an error and is, to say the least, unexpected.  (In fixing,
other "end of sentence" punctuation marks should be corrected, such as ! and ?)

Reproduced in OOo 1.1.1 and 680_m34. As you say, we would expect AutoCorrect to
change:

     "This is a test." like so
... to ...
     "This is a test." Like so

Note that this is not related to whether "smart quotes" are turned on, though
these have caused similar problems in the past (see issue 19077). This
autocorrect behaviour is functional in Microsoft Word, but not currently by OOo
Writer.

Marking issue as new.

An other matter is when we choose guillemet typological->simple
guillemet->replace->default, with the simple guillemet that we often use in
french, thera are no autocorrection with the first letter.

For example :
This is a test. l’OOo
should be chang to :
This is a test. L’OOo

Note that there are several other issues concerning capitalisation and "special
characters".
Beside this one, a quick query reveals these:
Issue 17449 (Auto capitalization broken if field comes first in new sentence)
Issue 19077 (autocorrect capitalisation fails in words with apostophes)
Issue 59720 (Autocapitalization fails after numbers and symbols)
