SYMPTOMS

Microsoft Word may capitalize the first letter of inserted AutoCorrect text if the inserted text starts a sentence.

CAUSE

The "Capitalize first letter of sentences" option is turned on by default in Microsoft Word.

WORKAROUND

To avoid this behavior, use either of the following methods.

Method 1: Press CTRL+Z to Undo the AutoCorrect Formatting

Immediately after Word capitalizes the AutoCorrect entry, press CTRL+Z.

Word will undo the capitalization.

Method 2: Clear the "Capitalize first letter of sentences" Check Box

On the Tools menu, click AutoCorrect, and then click to clear the "Capitalize first letter of sentences" check box.

NOTE: This permanently disables the "Capitalize first letter of sentences" function until it is turned on again.

MORE INFORMATION

When you have created an AutoCorrect entry that begins with a lowercase letter, Microsoft Word may capitalize the first character when the AutoCorrect text begins a new sentence.
