Description osavill 2002-03-05 13:31:36 UTC
After a while of typing the Auto Corrector insisted that if I types 
"subscription" what I had meant to type was "SUBSCRIPTION" !! I could not make 
it stop always changing the text to "SUBSCRIPTION" !! 

I cannot attach a document because this is a session issue. Simply shutting 
down OO, restarting OO and reloading the document cures the problem.

All I can say is that there are both upper and lower case instances of 
"subscription" and "subscribe" in the document. Furthermore while typing I am 
offered "subscriptION" as an auto completion option (with "ION" being the blue 
extension text offered).

Please read the OR's !

3347 relates to entering text such as "PLEASE read all of THIs" into a
field that has a style attribute of "Capitalise". In that case the
word "THIs" gets a red wavy line as a spelling mistake. To the reader
this make no sense as what is displayed is "THIS", which appears
completely correct. What was fooling me was the fact that it was the
auto corrector that was providing the word "THIs".

This O.R. was to inform you that the auto corrector does not follow
the current case schema for the paragraph being typed. Sometimes to
the extent where it knows what word you want but insists on producing
it as all capitals, or even worse part capitals and part lower case.

I am re-opening this since it is NOT a duplicate.

The word completion collects all words that match the choosen length
unless the automatic spellcheck runs. Only in that case, only the
"good" words are collected. Therefore suggestions like "SUBScription"
(that the spellcheck later will complain about) are normal.

I see it as an enhancment to have one (or more) capitalisation options
for the word completion. At times, SUGGESTION and suggestion are not
treated differently.

-> Owen: If you like the case of capitalized-formatted words (shown
"THIS" but written "tHis" therefore spellcheck complaint surprises the
user) being cared about, write a new task. We can not handle
collective tasks. Thx.

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