Description sfriedman 2006-05-23 16:49:45 UTC
The first 'word' in the sentence was the reference that was displayed as "Table
1".  Ooo was auto-capitalizing the second word in the sentence as it did not
recognize the reference as the start of the sentence.

Comment 3 parity 2006-05-27 20:28:08 UTC
I can confirm this bug. I inserted a Table in a document. Then I started a
paragraph and wrote:
"Hello. Table 1 Shows ..."

Table 1 was the reference to the table and converted the small "s".

sfriedman, parity,
please specify how you inserted a reference to the table.
Comment 5 sfriedman 2006-11-27 15:52:22 UTC
Select Insert | Cross Reference.

In the cross-reference dialog box, select type=Table, then Selection="Table 1",
and finally format="Category and Number".  Then hit the insert button.
Comment 6 kpalagin 2006-11-28 16:18:14 UTC
I do not see where you can "select type=Table". Any chance of attaching 
screenshot (or two)?

Thanks a lot.
K. Palagin.

screen capture of type=Table.
Comment 8 sfriedman 2006-11-28 17:16:23 UTC
Note that the type=Table only shows up if a table has been inserted into the
document already.

I checked with "2.0.2  German version WIN XP: [680m5(Build9011)]" and was NOT
able to reproduce the problem, pls. see attached sample document.

Please specify your Platform and OS (WIN XP?). 
Please attach a sample document.

Comment 13 Rainer Bielefeld 2007-01-03 08:35:24 UTC
Yes, now I found what causes the problem. It seems that the autocorrect function
does not recognize any field after the full stop of the sentence before, so that
it recognizes the first "real" word as the absolutely first word of the sentence.

In the example from 'bug-65726.odt' "Table 1" after " ... of the para." is not
recognized as a word, Autocorrect takes "Shows" for the first word and changes
the "s" to a capital letter.

It seems to happen for to all fields (I tested several) and also in DRAW and
IMPRESS text fields.

That's a known problem.
