Yes, but that first deletes the new line or the space you typed. As soon

I thought that had been fixed. If it hasn't, it's a bug imho. Any
wordprocessor should treat the user's input and the autocorrect as two
*separate* edits to be undone. I hate to say it, but Word gets this right.

Yes, you are right, it is a bug.

Dunno about WordPerfect, but iirc that had the rule "only one
autocorrect is allowed to fire. Check the user dictionary first", so
anything with a weird spelling, capitalisation, whatever, you just put
in the user dictionary to correct it to itself - eg "MSc == MSc". The
exception to this was that if the *dictionary* entry was all lower case,
it referred only to the spelling and not the capitalisation/grammar etc.

Yes, this would have to go to a capitalization dictionary. But notice that such exceptions normally signal that a word is a proper name and must be always capitalized, whereas the "openSUSE" case is the exact reverse.
