Pub BUG: Random Caps caps Caps

Recommended Posts

For the first time I tried typing an entire page in Publisher rather than importing and editing. I found that the program randomly inserts Capitalized words, (just the first letter). I first noticed several of these after the fact and though it was typing errors, but I watched the screen closely, and as I typed the phrase "several times a day" I saw the lower case d change to a capital D a split second after I typed it.

I can confirm this has been happening to me the last few days.

The document I'm working on contains a lot of objects imported from other sources. Mostly PDFs generated from Sketch, in case that's a clue.

Turn off the 'Capitalize first letter of sentences' in Preferences > Auto Correct.

That might keep it from happening, but if so, there's still a problem, because it's Capitalizing every few words right in the Middle of sentences for no Obvious reason that I can see. :)

This is an acknowledged bug that has been fixed in the next customer beta build. Thanks for the report.

Just wanted to add my .02: I also see random capitalization.  Both times have been after punctuation (comma) or after a fraction (1/2).  Wondering if those trigger a capitalization?

Or a Single letter... I Mean after a Single... I Give up.

That was how I found out about it.

Looks like they are aware and fixing it with next update. Today I was typing a hyphenated double word and the capital appeared on the first word when I started typing the second!

Confirm, but it's not as random for me as I thought. For example, every time I type in a text box the letter (capital) "I" (eye) followed by another word, the word after "I" is capitalized. Example "I Had a great time", "Funny that, I Don't like that type of sandwich"
