    This has been around for about a month now where the on-screen keyboard doesn't auto-capitalize the first letter of a new sentence. It's a small problem but does anyone have any workarounds? Toggling the option in settings doesn't fix this.

    Having this enabled doesnt effect things like chrome where it still doesnt auto capitalize.

    It IS a Chrome problem! That's incredibly odd! And obviously shows that I switched to Chrome last month since it actually supports some touch gestures while Microsoft Edge and IE no longer support them (which is a ridiculous step back). Also got my first Android phone and wanted to transfer my bookmarks over. Thanks for that!

    This is not a Chrome thing. I. am. typing. this. on. my. new SP4. using Edge. as you can see, there is no auto-capitalization happening, except, it seems, for the very first sentence, and the following "I".
    It works here. but not here.
    It also does not work in notepad. why? it beggars belief that on an iPad it works - in chrome, by the way - but not on a higher spec device like this. quite disappointing really.

    Might be something the web site is doing... it works fine on Reddit but not on Surfaceforums.
    Reddit edit copy:
    It works on Reddit here. Reddit also works here. Same browser. Different tabs.
    Surfaceforums:
    It works here on surfaceforumes. however it doesn't work here on Surfaceforums. same browser. different tabs.

    Web site induced bug.
