Description msatterwhite 2004-03-31 15:53:48 UTC
When a word is added to the dictionary, the same word with the first letter
capitalized will not be recognized. As a word can appear either at the beginning
of a sentence or in the middle, it should not be necessary to add the same word
twice to account for this.

Example: assume that I'm using the (fictitious) adjective victix in a document.
I enter the following two sentences:

I have several victix apples. Victix apples are very sweet.

Auto spell check will flag both uses of this word as unknown. I right click on
the first occurrance and add it to my dictionary. All uses of "victix" will now
be accepted as correct ... but "Victix" is not recognized as a correct word even
though it is simply the same word at the beginning of the sentece.

Also, if you choose "Replace" using an uncapitalized substitution for the first
word of a sentence, it is not automatically capitalized as it would be if you
were entering in "on the run."  Come to think of it, the feature you are
requesting is one that has been standardized for spellcheckers for over a decade
(I've been working with computers since the "good old days" of CP/M.)

MRU->TL: I also think, that the spelling algorithm should take care of
capitalized words at the beginning of a sentence, when the word has been added
to  a used dic as non-capitalized.

Target set to OOo later.

I replicated the bug on OOo 1.1.4 (using Windows XP, service pack 2)
I also tried adding the word to all the 3 different dictionaries (sun.dic, 
soffice.dic, standard.dic) and the bug still exists.
Comment 6 gendi 2005-02-04 19:44:27 UTC
also just to clarify, the addition of a word to any dictionary of the 3 is 
case sensative (no matter where the capital letter is -- first, middle of the  
word, or last) .. that is just an addition to this bug.
