In the last version or two of desktop Accordance, the search entry automatically capitalizes the first letter. If I enter a reference such as mt 2.2, it is changed to Mt 2.2, which is fine. If I enter a word like pan, it becomes Pan, which still gives me pan (all lower case) in the results, and that too is fine. However this automatic capitalization give unpredictable results when entering Greek (polytonic keyboard) or Hebrew words.

 

Please give us the option to turn off this feature (at least when using non-Roman characters.

On both my MacBook Pro and my Acer R7-572, Accordance does not automatically capitalize letters in the search field. Do you think you might have installed a text utility on your computer that would be doing this?

Rick you nailed it, thanks. TextExpander is a relatively recent addition to my computer. It was the "offender."
