How can I turn this off or at least have a setting for it not to add capitalisation after e.g., i.e., etc.

Here's how to turn it off Jul 6, 2015

You can turn this off:

File --> Options --> Editor --> AutoCorrect

--> Uncheck "Capitalize first letter of sentences"

Et voilà

Even better Jun 4

Here's how to turn it off Jul 6, 2015

You can turn this off:

File --> Options --> Editor --> AutoCorrect

--> Uncheck "Capitalize first letter of sentences"

Et voilà

Goto autocorrect as above but don't --> Uncheck "Capitalize first letter of sentences"

instead click "exceptions" and add i.e. to the relevant list

In this way you also retain auto-capitalisation of 1st word of sentence.
