Hello,
I'm using DNS 8 Preferred edition to input some files in an Excel spreadsheet. Each paragraph should go in each cell, some paragraphs have more than one sentence separated by periods.

The problem is that I can't make Dragon to start each sentence or each new cell with upper case. I know that in Word+Trados, hiding the hidden text solves the problem of the initial upper case, but I can't find this option in Excel. Does anybody know how to fix this problem?

Thanks Mar 17, 2007

Thank you Vito, I opened the Autocorrection window and the option 'Capitalize first letter of sentences' was checked but it only works with new sentences after a period.
