Please Login to Remove!


is there a way to turn off the auto caps feature ? like when i type the first word in a sentence it always makes the first letter of the work a capital letter.

I don't know of a way to turn it off, but if you type the letter, then delete it, then type it again, you can force it into lowercase (just like Word or WordPerfect).

There is not a way to disable that. Redstripe posted the only workaround I know of.

There is a way to disable the auto Caps when typing (ie: after a period). Just backspace once, you should see a lower case, or hold the key until lower case appears. Like redstripe mentioned, there is no way to disable that feature all together.
