Description Óvári 2015-09-26 10:36:15 UTC
Enhancement suggestion whereby reserved words are automatically changed to the case.

Eg writing the line:
     dim i as integer
   should automatically changed to:
     Dim i As Integer
   as Dim, As and Integer are reserved words

Thank you

In this formulation, this can not be realized, for the reason that a person has the right to write these words as wishes.

(In reply to tagezi from comment #2)
Some reasons for handling of case in reserved words:
1. coMpetitive office Suites have this feature.
2. Excellent for rapid software development using high-level programming languages, especially for people whose core competency is not programming.
3. Helps to locate errors.
4. Makes code easier to read.
5. Consistent code in software development across companies, government, etc.

Perhaps LO could have an option to turn of case handling for reserved words to satisfy tagezi's request.

Reverting status to NEW.

Thank you
