    Auto Format Capital Letters (XP)

    When I type sentences Word automatically capitalizes the first letter of the sentence. The exception is when a digit is at the end of the previous sentence.
    Example:
    This is number 1.
    It seems the digit stops the auto format from capitalizing the first word of the next sentence.
    Is there a way to set one of the auto format options to capitalize the first letter of the sentence even if the previous sentence is ended with a digit?

    Thank you,
    Carla

    No, there isn't. In Word 97 and before, Word would capitalize the first word after a number followed by a period, but people complained that this wreaked havok with numbered lists, so it was changed in Word 2000. The "official" stance is that you shouldn't end a sentence with a number - either rearrange the sentence or spell the number:

    This is number one.
