Not really a fix, but something you could try...

You can add an auto correct entry that will transform a sequence of,
for example "a to "A (you would also need to add all the letters). For
the closing quote, the sequence would be ." a which would become ." A.
Since it is auto correct, you would need to place a space after the
letter when you type and then erase (typing sequence:
"a<space><backspace>). The one advantage is you can control the
capitalization: typing "abc would remain as "abc, while
"a<space><backspace>bc would become "Abc.

No need for backspacing - just use this

"a.*    "A
"b.*    "B
"c.*    "C

and it will replace whole words.


I hope this helps.

Try as I might, I can't find a solution to this and I have been looking
for months in the forums and similar.

I am a writer. A novelist. Auto capitalization works really well with my
physical disabilities. It does not work when I put quotes at the start
of a sentence.

For instance...

When I type the below, the words after the quotes are not capitalized.
Is there a Macro or a setting to make LO ignore quotes as a typed
character when auto capitalizing? I want all instances, when quoting, to
be capitalized.

"the dog is over here." he said.

Should be,

"The dog is over here." He said

Turning off smart quotes does not help. Is there a Macro somewhere that
will fix this annoying issue?.
