Here is something I'd like to see (or which I need to be pointed to):

Right now, I have an shorthand entry stcom which expands to \stcommand.

If I type STCOM and then a space, the expansion is \STCOMMAND.

It would be nice if I could type Stcom and get \Stcommand.

Perhaps this is already built-in, but I couldn't get it to work, even with 'Keep abbreviation's case' unchecked.

I see what you mean - I'll make a note of it for the future.

Right now, if you're willing to sacrifice one saved keystroke, if you define the shorthand as stcom -> stcommand, and instead type the backslash yourself, you will get the matching capitalization results you're after.

Duh. I didn't even think of the backslash as counting as the first character of the expansion.

Thanks.
