Description peter 2014-04-11 02:00:59 UTC
Problem description: 

Typing a lowercase i and then pressing space, automatically replaces it with I. Even when i --> I rule has been removed from Autocorrect.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Remove the autocorrect rule that changes i to I.
2. Turn off the 'Capitalise first letter of every sentence' option in autocorrect Options
3. Type i followed by a space

Current behaviour: i is converted to I. 

Expected behaviour: i remains as i.

If I'm not using this feature correctly, please let me know.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: release

if you had an autocorrect entry "i --> I" it was normal that it did that auto-capitalization of "i". now that you removed it you don't show that anymore.

feel free to REOPEN if you see the bug again

Thanks - please note though, I had auto-captialisation of i-->I for British English, not Australian English. When my document was using Australian English, I still found i being turned into I. If it comes back, I'll let you know, but as I have deleted the entry for both languages, I doubt it will.

Thanks very much for giving this your attention.
