Hi,

This is one of those really annoying ones that just is completely pissing me off because I cannot
find out to fix the problem.  The problem is in using StarOffice, with it's ever so useful
'Correct-as-you-type' MS Office type feature.  My problem is that, I am entering individual data in
the cells of a spreadsheet [or at times a text document] and I don't want the data to begin with a
capital letter.  Annoying SO automatically replaces the small latter with a capital as soon as I
press enter.  I've changed the 'Case Sensitive' option in the General->Language options panel but it
won't stop!  Any assistance greatly appreciated as there is nothing I hate more than a computer
trying to help me but just pissing me off in the mean time.

Cheers
Ade

"Tools->AutoCorrect/AutoFormat..." tab "Options" and deselect
"Capitalize first letter of every sentence"

GENIUS!

Thanks very much

No, I read the manual. Try playing. Try "Help->Contents", or check the
StarOffice news groups on supportforum.sun.com

Yes! I finally got this nuance to work. Previously, my work-around had
to be placing a single ' in front of the text. I much prefer that
annoying auto-cap turned off.

What got me was that I always went to Tools-Options at the desktop
level. The advice by James Lee must be applied at the document level be
it a presentation, spreadsheet, text, etc.

Would be nice if you'd set the wrap margin in Netsc(r)ape there so it
wraps lines at about 72 characters.  Most of us are probably using text-
based newsreaders that don't handle the (bad) formatting of Netscape.

Yeah, but longstanding Usenet tradition (i.e. netiquette) is to write
for displays that are 80 characters wide.  That's why when I try to
submit a reply to a message like this, my news software (trn) gives me
a warning:

  Warning: posting exceeds 79 columns.  Line 17 is the first long one:
  >#  > This is one of those really annoying ones that just is completely pissing me off because I cannot

Too bad news software these days seems to try to encourage people to
break netiquette instead of discouraging them.

But actually it was in a sense. You typing was set at 106 columns and
reading it in a 80 column window causes exactly the ugliness you see
above. So the request still stands, please post in <80 character
columns. Actually no word wrapping is better than non-standard word
wrapping.

1. StarOffice & AnswerBook won't work after installing Netscape

Hi all. :-)

I am new to Solaris.
My installation of the x86 Solaris 7 was a VERY smooth ride. :-)

After I installed the OS, I installed the AnswerBook which was on the
Solaris Doc CD.
I then install the StarOffice 5.0

Every thing is working so far, but I wanted to use Netscape to view the
AnswerBook, so I installed the Netscape Communicator 4.5 (via the
WebStart). After I restarted the computer, and...

BOOM!!!

The AnswerBook doesn't work now (can't load it some how, I think). Also
my StarOffice couldn't start as well. But Netscape works good.

So I uninstalled the Netscape, and everything back to normal (they all
worked again). :-)

I *can* live without Netscape, but since I used to it, and want to keep
using it. I'm looking for a way to make Netscape work *peacefully* with
StarOffice 5.0 and AnswerBook under Solaris 7. Could anyone please,
please help me?

Thank you soo much!

Edward
