Frequently asked questions - Writer
How do I add an accent to a capital character?
There are several possibilities.
Automatic correction for capitals at the beginning of a sentence
Writer automatically corrects some errors while typing. To capitalize the first letter of every sentence:
- select the ▸ ▸ menu;
- check the third option Capitalize first letter of every sentence.
Subsequently, when you type a lower case character (with or without an accent) after a period, it will be converted automatically to upper case.
AutoText added with DMaths extension
DMaths allows users of Writer to produce capital letters easily at the beginning of a word. If you allow DMaths to install its built-in AutoTexts, you can write accented characters in lower case and use the 'F3' button to convert them to upper case.
Add a shortcut key
It is possible to add a shortcut key (for example: Ctrl + Alt + M) to transform the selected text into upper case. This shortcut will work with all LibreOffice modules: Writer, Draw, Impress and Calc.
