Description hennejg 2006-01-22 15:57:24 UTC
If a field is entered at the start of a line, Autocorrect insists on
capitalizing the next word, as if the field itself doesn't count as a word.

To reproduce:
- create new document
- turn on autocorrect
- insert "date" field (or any other)
- type a word

for me the first word after a field is not capitalized in OOo 2.0.1; eg. in 
<date> is a date does the is get not capitalized.
Comment 2 ace_dent 2006-01-23 02:57:59 UTC
Confirmed with OOo 2.0.1 using Writer (en_GB), on PC with XP SP2.

- Start new Writer document.
- Insert>Fields>Date.
- Right click on Date to modify 'Fields...'
- Change Date Format to a textual month, i.e. 'December'.
- Now type "is a month of the year."
- Autocorrect changes the first typed letter to a capital.
- Text now reads: "January Is a month of the year".
- Should read: "January is a month of the year".

So (as originally reported), Autocorrect ignores the Field when making the first
letter of a sentence a capital letter. Work around: Disable this function. 
- Tools>AutoCorrect...
- Go to 'Options' tab
- Un-tick option for 'Capitalize first letter of every sentence'.

This is related to issue 53416 and issue 17449; maybe even duplicate.
Reassigned to SBA.
Comment 4 hennejg 2006-01-23 08:17:22 UTC
A few notes:

I can reproduce the problem, regardless of the kind of field I use. Be it a
cross-reference, date, whatever.

I did find #53416, but decided that it was a different kind of beast.

#17449 seems to be it - sorry for reporting a dupe. Could someone with
sufficient permission please change the description of #17449, so that it is
found when searching for "autocorrect"?
Comment 5 ace_dent 2006-01-23 12:52:47 UTC
Search term appears in Description for 17449, not required in Summary.
Closing duplicate.
