At the moment, autocorrect preferences seem to apply globally across all the various modules of OOo. They certainly do between writer and calc. I would like there to be a possibility to have different settings depending on where I am working. This especially matters with capitalisation: there may be very good reasons to want words capitalised at the beginning of sentences in the word processor, but to allow all lower case entries in a spreadsheet. At the moment this can't be done. And it would be helpful. I think this is a framework issue. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

As mentioned years ago, there are several requests for this. I would really like to use Autocomplete in Writer but not in Calc. For examples, the single quote correction is nice in writer, but a pain in Calc, where I routinely use single quotes to mean "don't change my text" - but have to use "undo" after every single quote to prevent that change! Similarly with typing fractions (e.g., 1/2 to mean 0.5 or a date is rendered as the half-fraction symbol) in Calc is, frankly, absurd, whereas it IS desirable in Writer and Impress. I don't understand why this request has been ignored for nearly 7 years. Is there some fundamental reason that autocorrect must be linked across all programs? Apparently not, because the Autocomplete component is separate in each. Can anything be done about this?

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
