       Should this work in MSFT Windows? - if so, could you please explain;
           it's frustrating to have to exit out of that box, erase the
erroneous letters it placed in the document, then start again ...

Is it possible to configure LO writer auto-complete function such that
the font style is maintained?

For example, the word 'explanation'. If the caps-lock is activated,
the auto-complete offers to complete word in lower case:


It would be better if the auto-complete function maintained the same
font-style when completing a word.

Is this a legitimate feature request?

     It already does this. For example, in a document I use both select
and SELECT. [I have set the minimum word length to 6.] When I type SEL, it
offers to complete it as SELECT. When I type sel, it offers to complete it
as select. It does these two things because I have used both words in the
document before.
     My settings in Tools > AutoCompletion Options > Word Completion tab:
Enable word completion checked, Show as tip checked, Collect words checked,
"When closing a document ..." checked, Min. word length 6, and Max entries
at 1000.
     The key may be that you have to have an entry in this list with the
proper case before it will suggest it.
     I tested this using LO 3.4.6 and 3.5.5 on Ubuntu 12.04. LO downloaded
from the the LO website.
