Description ingenstans 2002-07-20 16:08:28 UTC
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.

Very much desired. See similar issues 20008, 21735, 23612

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".
