Reply to: UWL in XMetal 12.0 does not recognize capitalization

I’m running:
Binary#: 12.0.0.081
Installer#: 12.0.0185

What I want to do is create a term list of non approved words, and their suggested replacements. So, in the UWL dialog box, I have added:

Word/phrase: Replace With:
Abandon stop

I save it, create a new topic, add the following sentence: “Abandon the step, then abandon the procedure.”

I get the red squiggly line under “Abandon”, but not under “abandon”.

If I enter the term in the UWL as “abondon”, I get the squiggly line for the lowercase instance, but not the uppercase instance. Right now, I have to create two separate UWL files. I was hoping to create one UWL file, with all caps, and then copy/paste it, open and change all of the Capital letters to lowercase. But I cannot do that, due to the proprietary nature of the UWL code. It would be really nice if it didn’t care about the capitalization at all, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
