Automatic period by hitting double space

Postby lucidor » Mon Oct 08, 2018 2:40 am

I'm used to a certain capability available on the iPhone during text composition. If you get to the end of a sentence, you can hit space twice whereupon a period is added at the end of the sentence after which the two spaces are appended and you're ready for the next sentence.

Anyone know how to make that capability available in Apache Open Office 4.5.1?

I just keep hitting those spaces and I get nothing! :^)

Thanks for any help!

The Autocorrect feature should do what you want. Note you may have to turn off the option to ignore double spaces.
