I have been using the voice typing feature in
Google Chrome to write some documents, then
download them in .odt format for editing.
I find that it consistently starts a new
paragraph with a lower case first letter. So I
need to find the first letter of every paragraph
in the document and convert it to upper case.
I thought of using Find and Replace with Regular
Expressions, which is easy. ^[:lower:] finds
every lower case letter which is the first
letter of a paragraph. But when I enter
[:upper:] in the replace box it simply pastes
the text [:upper:] . I have both the "match
case" and "regular expressions" boxes ticked.
Is there a way to do this other than going
through the document and replacing manually?

To answer my own question:
1. Use the Find and Replace box and Reg. Exp.. Click on "Find All".
2. Close "Find and Replace" dialog.
3. Right click on one of the highlighted letters. Format- Text- Upper case
Does this also work?
o Find: ^. (caret-dot)
o Replace: & (ampersand)
o Tick "Regular expressions". (No need for "Match case".)
o With the cursor in the Replace box, click Format... .
o On the Font Effects tab, for Effects select Capitals.
o Replace All.
