Dear colleague,

Each time I start a new segment, Trados transforms the first letter automatically into a capital letter, which is not always what I want. How can I change that setting?

Hi Jeanne,

I had the same problem as you, and found that this can be unchecked in the Options.

Options > Automatic corrections > Capital letter at the beginning of a sentence

(sorry, mine is the French version, so this is translated from French. "Automatic corrections" is just under "spelling" in the "Editor", which is the first choice in the list of Options).

Hope this helps,
