Description kaesezeh 2014-02-13 16:02:59 UTC
I am using Calc and I want to

- generally have the functionality of Calc autocorrecting two initial caps;
- still be able to use it every now and then for plural abbreviations (like RTs for reaction times).

As far as I remember, it was possible to type that, let Calc autocorrect, and then do CTRL-Z do undo only the autocorrect. That is not possible anymore and neither is goign back into the cell and changing the t to T because the moment one exits the cell, the t comes back. Am I supposed to deactivate all of that autocorrect for a simple cell?!!

Hi, I verified under and and both have the same behavior, even when unchecked AutoInput, from what I recall it has always been like that in Calc, Ctrl+Z works in Writer. As a workaround you should add your abbreviations to the exceptions list.

Cool, thanks, looking forward to that, I need that with a lot of different things (variable names in statistics).

On pc Debian x86-64 with LO 4.3.3, I must do Ctrl-Z twice (on Writer or on Calc) so the 2 initials appear.

I put fdo#57646 in See Also. The goal is to automatically add the word in exception list when undoing.
