Bug: Tag auto-complete doesn't preserve typed capitalization

Recommended Posts

Tag auto-complete is an excellent feature, but, if the user does not use the auto-complete suggestion, the typed capitalization should be preserved. For instance, I have a tag "MMS." If I start tagging a note with "maintenance," auto-complete first suggests "MMS." As I continue to type, this suggestion is withdrawn, but the capitalization of the suggestion remains. So, I end up with the tag "Maintenance" rather than "maintenance." This becomes more annoying when the first two letter match. For instance, I have a tag "MAG" and want to tag with "maintenance." The result after auto-complete makes suggestions is "MAintenance." The auto-complete should definitely preserve existing tag capitalization if I use an existing tag. If I tag "mag," it should substitute "MAG," but it should respect typed capitalization if I type a new tag rather than using the auto-complete suggestion.

I know this behavior occurs with the Mac client, but I am unsure which other platforms this applies to.

Thanks for the report. I have filed a bug on this issue on the Mac client.

Is there any news on this one? It annoyed the heck out of me last night, just trying to tag something with "iPhone" and "SIM". But I notice it's been more than two years since the initial report...

Three years after the bug filed now. Problem still exists.

 

i got to type "house" and it suggests "HOD" - so when I keep typing "house" I get "HOuse"

 

 

PS: the only kludgy workaround is to go back and type "HOhouse" and then delete first two capitals

Sigh. I was just nearly screaming at my Mac as I tried to get Evernote to tag something "IKEA" rather than "iKEA". Evernote's changed beyond recognition since 2010, but the things that annoy me don't seem to go away.
