Auto spell checker wants to capitalise new lines after forced line breaks
This is a bug report for the new auto spell checker feature in Illustrator 2020.
It does not understand that when you force a line break (using shift-return, not making a new paragraph with return), it’s not a new sentence.
So it wants to capitalise the first word on the new line.
This makes no sense and does not match the way it works in InDesign.
Thanks for fixing that!

Upvote. For someone doing technical illustration, flagging a capital after a line break makes the spell checker unusable.
Philip Byrne commented
Make spellcheck take soft returns into account when suggesting capitalisation. At the moment, it doesn't recognise a soft return for what it is and instead suggests the next word is the start of a new sentence.
Why it's important? Because it's a basic omission.
I agree. Just finished chatting with Support, trying to sort this out. He sent me here so that I could submit a "Feature Request" and I laughed. A fixed bug is NOT a feature.
