Description abryl 2007-01-31 17:41:48 UTC
Currently "Replace dashes" option of AutoCorrect dialog allows to replace a
hyphen with a dash in situations like "word - anotherword". However, this is not
enough at least for Russian and Belarusian languages, where dash may follow a
punctuation mark, or even start a paragraph. Direct speech in this languages is
often written like:

- Something, - said John. - Something more!

So it will be very useful to have sub-options "after punctuation marks" and "at
the beginning of a paragraph" is the "Replace dashes" option, switched on by
default for some languages.
