I use a lot of custom dictionary entries for medical words.
However, for each word I use, I need to have a lower case and upper version of the word since they are often used as the first word in a heading or a sentence.
Currently, the spell checker triggers this as a spelling error. It should find the lower case version and apply some "intelligence" to decide it the capitalization is "correct" (or provide options to ignore certain capitalization errors like first character of sentence and headings as spelling errors).
This is a spellcheck issue, therefore changed the Component field to 'Linguistic' (the component used "For problems with spell checking, hyphenation and thesaurus").
I should perhaps add an example:
let's say I add "myofascia" to my custom dictionary.
The myofascia is tight. -> no spelling error.
Myofascia often develops restrictions. -> spelling error since I only added "myofascia" to the dictionary, not "Myofascia".
I can add both to the dictionary, but then the dictionary get potentially 2x as big, plus more of a chance to add a mispelled variant by accident since have to add it twice. Just increases the signal to noise ratio for the spell checker.
Similar to 'Bug 37954 - EDITING Writer AutoSpellcheck flags capitalized words as misspelled despite being added lowercase in the custom dictionary'.
Would you agree to mark your report as duplicate of bug 37954?
Yes, it would seem to be a duplicate of the same issue.
However, it seems the other bug is being somewhat ignored/downplayed. I think this is an important flaw/bug/enhancement toward making the daily use of LibO to be better.
And, it would also bring another level of feature parity to MS Office (as you only need to have the lowercase variant in the custom dictionary for the spellcheck to pass).
