Thirdly, it can get stuck in a repetitive cycle:

Open a blank Writer document and type "cat" followed by enter. See the

That doesn't look right to me... If you type a space and it automatically capitalises, the first "undo" undoes the capitalisation and a second "undo" undoes the space. I would have thought it should be the same for a new paragraph - first "undo" should undo the capitalisation, and a second "undo" should undo the new paragraph, not the other way around...?

Hit end, and retype the enter. See the
initial "c" get capitalized. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Yes, you can break the cycle by typing a space after the "cat", then
pressing ctrl-z to undo the capitalization, then pressing enter, then
going back to the first line and deleting the space at the end of the
line and then going down to the new line. One could also open Notepad,
type the text in there, then copy and paste it into Writer. But that is
a bit tedious, and kind of misses the point of Writer, don't you think?

Those are indeed workarounds. Personally, I disable a lot of the "autocorrect" features. Apart from avoiding the hassle when I don't want something "corrected", it also helps me learn to type right in the first place!
