Using Directconnect, but the problem is with SpellCatcher thinking that when I type the capital “I” I am doing something wrong. In DC it shows brown.

There must be a global preference I set incorrectly.

Brown indicates a punctuation error.

Can you give me a concrete example?

OK, looks like the "I"s are highlighted in orange, indicating they are shorthands.

Easy to tell, just hover the mouse over a highlighted word to see the type of error. Click it for more info and suggestions.

This tells me you have a shorthand with abbreviation "I" (possibly lowercase "i"). Again, easy to find out - use the Find In References command to search for "i". If you have defined a shorthand to automatically change lowercase "i" to uppercase "I", you would generally want to select the "Match abbreviation's case" and "Keep expansion's case" options for that shorthand. Doing this will prevent Spell Catcher from considering uppercase "I" as an error or shorthand.

Like magic, which I guess is your actual product.

Thank you.
