Using an old message as an example, 7.5.302 patch 11 now
autopropagates the following examples correctly:
(with "Allow case conversions" turned on)
abc -> xyz
Abc -> Xyz
ABC -> XYZ
abc -> xyz
Abc -> Xyz
ABC -> ABC
(with "Allow case conversions" turned off)
TEUR 23,3 -> 23.3 thousand EUR
TEUR 45,6 -> 45.6 thousand EUR
TEUR 57,3 -> 57.3 thousand EUR
TEUR 33,2 -> 33.2 thousand EUR
with "Allow case conversion" turned on:
TEUR 45,6 -> 45.6 THOUSAND EUR
Good news for Victor (and the rest of us) ;-)
