3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Writer is when one adds the word "extrusión" to the custom dictionary, AutoSpellcheck does not underline the words "Extrusión" and "EXTRUSIÓN" as misspelled.
4) What happens instead is AutoSpellcheck does underline these case variations and suggests it to be the lowercased version.
WORKAROUND: Add each case variant.
Not a Bug, but a feature?
Seems to be INVALID without evidences for the expected behavior:
1. German Wort "man" is correct, bug "Man" would be wrong, so I doubt that
assumption "... does not underline the words "Extrusión" ..." from original
report is correct, why should spellcheck accept misspelled word "Man"?
IMHO assumption in report only is correct for unchecked preference "Check Capitalization".
2. The "EXTRUSIÓN" problem might be something different. The option "Check uppercase words" seems to mean:
- unchecked option: No uppercase word will be marked as misspelled, even nonsense
words like "GANOIRIEJKTGTKJTRINZROSAAAAAAAAAA"
- Checked option: onl words known in lowercase or with leading uppercase first
letter will be accepted as correct in complete uppercase
So I agree with the assumption, but that seems to be completely broken in 3.4.1, I will file a separate report after some more investigation.
Can you please add some information concerning my question in 1.?
Unchecking "Check Capitalization" has no impact on this issue.
In Microsoft Office Word 2003 (11.5604.6505), if one adds extrusión in the Custom Dictionary, Extrusión and EXTRUSIÓN are not flagged as misspelled.

Um it affects Win 7 64-bit on latest beta, so feel free to toggle it back to what I set.

Of course programmers are busy with more serious issues, as colorful sheet labels or new footer separators. One may wonder, do they use their product themselves?
