Somewhat annoying
« on: December 16, 2011, 01:00:25 PM »
Somewhat annoying but not the end of the world, but if you are able to re-program the Auto-Format the text fields so that when a hyphenated name is detected TD does not change the first letter after the hyphen to a miniscule letter?
Example; Billie-Jo is changed to Billie-jo.

Here in Quebec (and in any country where french is dominant) there are countless hyphenated names (Jean-Luc, Jean-Pierre, Marie-Josee and the list goes on for pages). As I dais at the beginning, it is just a bit visually annoying and doesn't affect functionality but....
Thanks
Jody

I totally understand.  I will see about changing this, although I fear that because the software is used in countries all over the world, there could be a million tweaks to make this work for everyone ...

So here's a question for you (in a French dominated location): is it customary to put your surname first and fully capitalize it?  For example, I write my name as "Corey Cooper", but for French customers I keep seeing the format "COOPER Corey" (or at least "Corey COOPER").

No, only thing capitalized is the first letter, nothing more

I've run into a similar quirk.  I have Irish names like O'Neill where the "O" is capitalized but the "N" is not.  I try to make the change but it never takes, it always reverts back to "n".  The funny thing is at some point (maybe on a previous software version) this did not occur because I do have some that display as "N" (O'Neill).  I currently use the latest 3.0 version.  Am I missing a preferences setting or something?

Right at the bottom of the New Player dialog: "Auto format name fields"
