Every line starts with a capital letter. Help please. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I guess the title says it all.  In Word 2007, I can't figure out how to have only the first word of SENTENCES capitalized.  Right now, every LINE starts with a capital letter.  I have to go back and change each line's first letter.  Ptooohee.  This can't be that hard, but it is for me.

  • Hi,

    Don't press 'enter' at the end of every line. It's a word processor. Word treats a new paragraph as a new sentence.

    In Word 2007, click the Office button>Word Options>Proofing tab>AutoCorrect Options>AutoCorrect tab and remove the check next to Capitalize first letter of sentences. You can turn that off from autocorrect options.

    Hope it helps.

  • Hello Jennifer from 'cros the Pond.  I have spent hours trying to get rid of capitals at the start of every line.....it was driving me "NUTS".  Then I found your tip....it worked.

    Thank you so much,
