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.

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 ?

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.

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. 
Comment 8 suripally 2005-02-04 19:07:30 UTC
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.

Fucking impotents.

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.
