Hello everyone,

This question is about LibreOffice Writer versión 6.0.3. I want LibreOffice Writer to auto capitalize the first letter on lists. I have the option Capitalize first letter of every sentence and While typing active but on lists I have to manually enter the first letter on each element of the list in uppercase. I want that it does the same as in regular sentences.

The autocapitalize es working fine on regular sentences but afer a list, even on regular paragraphs the auto capitalize does not work anymore.

Thanks for the help.

Autocapitalize works on list too, provided that the previous item ended on a full stop. it's the same on normal paragraphs: without a previous full stop there is no change.

Of course, the problem here is that usually list do not end on full stops. I think the (quite simple) logic used by Writer to define what's a new sentence should be reviewed. [There are already some but reports about automatic capitalization on bugzilla.]
