When the word comes at the beginning of the line and the previous line does not end with a period, or when it is preceded with an ellipse, the auto-capitalization does not work.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write a sentence with no period at its end
2. In the second line, type your first word
3. Reproduce step one with an ellipse at the end of the sentence
4. Reproduce step 2
No auto capitalization

Likid, why do you expect Auto capitaization in such a case. Have a look at Tools > AutoCorrect > AutoCorrect Options (Tab "Options"). Rule for AutCaps is: "Capitlaise first letter of every sentecne". So as far as I can see, everything works as expected. Please explain, why you expect something different.

The "Capitalize first letter of every sentence" is enabled. So I expect that this is applicable when the previous line does not end with a period or when the current word is preceded with an ellipse... Which is not the case.

So I think there are different opinions about "sentence". As far as I know an ellipse can't close a sentence (if you can, please give me an example). So for me LO works as expected.
But you're right, that in most cases words are capitalized after an ellipse. So perhaps there could be an additional option. But that's an enhancement request.
(I changed comonent to LibreOffice, because AutoComplete doesn't effect only Writer)
Thanks for your contribution.
Regarding the ellipses: "If the text that follows the ellipsis continues the same sentence, the word after the ellipsis is not capitalized. If the text that follows the ellipsis begins a new sentence, it would be capitalized.", according to thepunctuationguide.com. The same rule applies for French.
O. K. let's change to NEW.
Same with end quotes at the end of a citation. AutoCorrect option should also work in tis case.
