Description Bill Sanford 2019-09-19 14:15:00 UTC
Using libreoffice6.3-, I would either type words of cAPS or CAps and they are instantly auto-corrected and not indicated a spelling error with the red wavy line. This is opposite of https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121779

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Writer, type cAPS or CAps anywhere in the document.

Actual Results:
Any spelling error of "Auto-capitalization" is instantly auto-corrected.

Expected Results:
Any spelling error of "Auto-capitalization" has a red wavy line under it.

Reproducible: Always

The words iPhone and fMRI do work, but what happens when more words are added and they are not part of a list? Maybe this should be an RFE for words in general?

I also saw that the CAps were also auto-corrected and would think that there would also be the red, wavy line instead of it being auto-corrected.

I thought this was added as a default config.
