Hi Everybody,
I need help with a freshly re-installed copy of Trados, since when I write trados automatically changes some letters to uppercase (if I am writing in lowercase) or lowercase (if I am writing in uppercase). For example: ToDaY is a SuNNy day.
Can you please help me?
Thank you

I have found this post of 2014, but the author didn't receive any reply: See more

I have tried to uncheck the box "Correct accidental usage of cAPS lOCK key" and it seems to work for now.. (another mystery of Trados)

Hi, maybe there's something wrong with your keyboard. Have you tried connecting another one for checking?

Similar problem Aug 23

I have the same problem, and I believe this is not Trados's fault.
My keyboard sometimes "writes" symbols ( "/") or enjoys to place extra spaces,
I don't recommend All-in-one computers. Apart from this, keyboards are smaller for my "Neanderthal hands".
I have always used laptops, and last year I made a change (a wrong one... I guess).

Thank you Wolfgang, actually I use a wireless apple keyboard and the problem has occurred only in trados..but I think I solved it unchecking the box "Correct accidental usage of cAPS lOCK key"

I was wrong, it didn't solve the problem..

I unchecked "correct two initial capitals" and now it seems to work..

Yes, I also have big fingers so it is frustrating writing fast sometimes..:)

According to Brunos saying it did NOT solve the problem.

@Bruno: A shot in the dark... you say you're using an apple wireless keyboard (so did I until 2 hours ago, but it has not enough keys so I'm back to apples large keyboard), have your tried to put your smartphone or any other BT or otherwise wireless item away from the keyboard/computer? Could be worth a try.

Did I misunderstand Bruno? Aug 23

"I unchecked "correct two initial capitals" and now it seems to work."
When I read the above I thought Bruno could solve it.
