Description sandreas41 2007-05-24 17:16:07 UTC
When Tools.Cell-Contents.AutoInput is on,
If there are existing cells with contents, when I attempt to change the
capitalization, it reverts after pressing Enter.

To reproduce, open a spreadsheet,
Turn on AutoInput,
type into the first cell: "sent"
then type "Sent" into the second cell
it reverts to "sent"

Even if I turn off AutoInput, and fill A1 with "sent" and A2 with "Sent", then
turn on AutoInput, and go to A3, and type "sen" and see "sent" suggested on
screen, and press enter,
it chooses to change it to "Sent".

With Tools.AutoInput on, I can understand why it is "helping", But, when I edit
the cell, I am unable to Force the contents without turning off AutoInput.

I suggest the behavior I would expect, is for OO to accept my edits, especially
when that word is already present elsewhere. Perhaps the lookup table is not
case sensitive? Or more importantly, the outcome is not rigid with the lookup
table. It should accept the case sensitivity if I type it. and especially if it
shows one thing, I press Enter, it should not change it at that late date.

Workaround: Type in another column and then paste over. AutoInput does not 
operate on clipboard entry.

There's a few other AutoInput case sensitivity issues:

Cannot enter case-varying 2 letter "words" in column

AutoInput does not honour reproduce case of previous entry

AutoInput: Capital letter attribute not copied when AutoSpellCheck is on

reassigning features and enhancements to user which
will be the default owner for those tasks (was introduced some time ago)

As given in description.
A local override to AutoInput must be provided to user.
