How do I stop OpenOffice.org from changing the first letter of a word to uppercase?

When lower case text is typed, OpenOffice.org changes the first letter to uppercase. How do I reverse this setting?


This setting is designed to correct sentences mistakenly typed starting with a lower case letter.

To reverse this setting:

  • Select Tools > AutoCorrect Options and then the Options tab.
  • Near the top of the list, uncheck the [T] box next to "Capitalize first letter of every sentence".
  • Click OK at the bottom of the dialog to apply the change.
