Default Capitalising Problem

Please Login to Remove!


I have a user who states that when he types on his 8100 the 1st letter of every word is capitalised without pressing the uppercase key.

I cannot replicate this - has anyone come across this before?

Is the user holding down the first key they press for too long?

It will do it when the first key is held for a few extra seconds. Also, it does it for the first word of every sentance. That is built in with the spell check and auto text word lists and I don't believe that option can be turned off

Dankarl is correct, not an option. It happens.
