Greek symbols (αβγδελμ..) converted to big letters (ΑΒΓΔΕΛ...) as automatic capitalization of first letters in sentense. This is sometimes anoying. Yes I could try find these symbols not from Greek letters region in charracter map.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Write sentence, at end write point (.)
2. type space ( )
3. copy "γ" (small gama)
4. type space ( )
γ converted to Γ
Ability to disable Greek letters capitalization, but leave first letter capitalization for general case.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
Any feasible use-case for this?
I am confirming this bug. Tested under Crunchbang 11 x86_64 running:
- v184.108.40.206 OOO330m19 Build: 401
- v220.127.116.11 OOO340m1 Build: 602
- v18.104.22.168 Build ID: 3215f89-f603614-ab984f2-7348103-1225a5b

- v188.8.131.52 Build ID: 70feb7d99726f064edab4605a8ab840c50ec57a
All versions change γ (U+03b3) to Γ (U+0393) when this is the first character after a full stop and space combination and is followed by a space e.g., "End. γ ". Status set to NEW. Version set to Inherited From OOo. Severity set to enhancement (as this has never existed before). Platform set to All/All.

> Any feasible use-case for this?
Mainly in science / mathematics, where commencing a sentence with a symbol is considered OK. I personally find this type of expression inelegant, but the use seems widespread in these domains. Further information:
Setting version back from "Inherited From OOo" to what it was prior (for bugs marked enhancement), for QA tracking purposes. My mistake. Apologies.

A workaround is to disable the "Capitalize first letter of every sentence" auto correction option.
