Created attachment 60631 [details]
sample text


Sample document attached. Whenever I right click the whole text and select 'Sentence case", it only corrects the first sentence in the text. In order to correct the other sentences, first I need to select something different than "Sentence case", like all capital letters or something, and then try "Sentence case" again.

Build ID: 281b639-6baa1d3-ef66a77-d866f25-f36d45
Running on Windows 7, 64 bit edition

The results were reproducible. Converting any selected text that is all lowercase to sentence case will only correct the first sentence.
Comment 2 Roman Eisele 2012-05-31 06:27:57 UTC
Still REPRODUCIBLE with LibreOffice (Build-ID: 165a79a-7059095-e13bb37-fef39a4-9503d18), German langpack installed, on MacOS X 10.6.8 German.

Changed Platform to "All/All" (according to comment #1, this problem is not limited to MacOS X).

You are our Writer expert, therefore I add your address to the CC field.
Comment 3 Emir Sarı (away) 2012-09-02 17:19:03 UTC
Still reproducible with LO release, both TR and ENG language packs. 10.7.4.

Restricted my LibreOffice hacking area
Comment 5 Laurent BP 2014-01-28 18:37:47 UTC
Still present in LibO

The Sentence case is correctly applied (on the first run) after '?' and '!'. The problem occurs only for '.'

Confirmed with LibO, AOO 4.0.1

Reproduced on in Windows 10.

"This is a test. a test, a test. This is a test." - but then in Dutch is only turned correctly into sentence case if it's first turned into all caps. Otherwise, nothing happens.

Comment 9 Balázs Meskó 2018-08-09 11:34:40 UTC
I have just reproduced the issue in LibreOffice (Win x64). Comment #5 is correct: exlamation and question marks do work, but full stop does not.
