Hi guys,

I was wondering if it's possible to setup my MacBook keyboard like my iPhone.
I couldn't find any settings.

What I mean by this is that it automatically puts an capital at the beginning of a sentence and automatically puts a dot when I double press space after my sentences.

I'm not sure if this is possible, it would be nice tough.

Thanks guys.

Not that I know of, but it would be handy.

No. Keep that feature on iOS devices please. Shift key is your friend.

For me it is no big loss as I am constantly switching between windows and mac on two different machines, so the use of the shift key is for me.

However I can see the use for people who solely use macs - just as long as they don't make it standard lol.

That still doesn't make sense, the shift key functions exactly the same way, we're talking about a shortcut that won't effect that functionality at all.

Yes it does make sense - I am saying that i switch between machines so if on one machine I dont have to click shift to put in caps or full stops and then i switch to a different machine it would annoy me.

So for me PERSONALLY if this option existed I would not use it. :p

There are so many applications where I would not want this. Programming being one of them. Then I'd have to deal with the hassle of switching between regular mode and this lax mode. That would be on top of fact that I input multiple languages. What a mess that would be.

If you're writing documents, there is a setting for it in Microsoft Word.

Otherwise, I think you're just lazy.
