I recently tried to type some Classical Greek with AbiWord (v2.0.0 and
2.0.6). Those ot you who speak Greek will know, that it has two standard
forms for the small letter "sigma" (mapped to two different codepoints
of the Unicode table): one is normally used only at the end of words,
the other in every other position. Now I had to realize, that AbiWord
doesn't care which form I type, it simply corrects it to the one
required by the official orthography, and I didn't find the way to
switch this behaviour off. Of course this is generally not a problem,
but imagine a scholar trying to give a letter-for-letter quotation from
an early manuscript, not "knowing" about our present day conventions,
and finding his work "corrected" by a word-processor! The funny thing is
that I don't even have a Greek spell checker installed, so the function
seems to be hard-wired into the binary.
I generally regard making any kind of autocorrect function
unswitchable as a very bad idea, so I intend to submit a bug report
about this. But before that I need to make sure that I didn't miss
something in the Preferences... that may solve the problem. So please
tell me if I did.
