Microsoft Word/auto caps
In the auto-correct menu of Mac Word, can I differentiate between the end of a sentence using a period (.) and a hard return? For example, I want to start a new line,
but do not want the start of the next line to be capitalized. All I can find is you either get the auto caps On of Off. This drives the poet in me crazy.
Lucy - I see that you are a Mac user but I don't see if you are using a recent version. I don't use a MAC but the features are similar.
From the Auto Correct dialog box on the Auto Format as you Type tab, select the option to define a style based on your formatting.
Type a line of text, hit enter for the new line > in the more recent versions you will see a blue line under the first letter that was just capitilized . This is called a TAG . If you click on it you will have the option to undo auto capitilization.
continue typing a sentence and your new sentence will be capitilized but when hitting enter the first letter of the next line will not be capitilized.
I hope this works for you . I attached 2 images.
Happy New Year.
