#1371 closed Defect (Fixed)

Autocompleting a name at the start of a message doesn't keep shift turned on

Reported by: hopkapi Owned by: kiji.roshi
Component: Colloquy (iOS) Version: 1.0 (iOS)
Severity: Normal Keywords:


When you start writing a message the iPhone automatically capitalises the first letter of it. Unfortunately if you use autocomplete to direct a message at someone ("jane: messageness"), shift does not stay turned on, so rather than "jane: Yay for provisioning profiles!", you get "jane: yay for provisioning profiles!". Not entirely sure if this is something that can be fixed/worked around, but if so, it'd be a darn nice piece of polish.

  • Status changed from new to assigned

We auto enable/disable capitalization for each new message based on the first letter of the previous message. To be smart, if the user never uses a capital first letter, they wont have to keep disabling the shift key. We could improve this to not guess when you use a completion.

Also I'm not sure you are talking about what I mentioned. I think you expect "Yay" to be capital, since it comes after a ":". But this isn't considered a new sentence, so the iPhone does not turn on the shift key. It will if you type ".", "?" or "!". And we can't programatically turn on the shift key, we can only enable or disable auto-capitalization.
