Auto-capitalize is enabled in code blocks

Steps to reproduce

  • Create a code block with three backticks
  • Start typing

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

I expect code blocks to display what I type without any form of autocorrection or automatic capitalization. Code tends to be case-sensitive, and automatic capitalization interferes more than it helps.

Actual result

The first letter of every line is automatically capitalized. This makes it annoyingly difficult to write valid code.

Additional information

it’s the apple keyboard that autocatalyzes. Not sure if we have control over it, but you can open a FR for this.

As an app developer, you absolutely do have control over the keyboard behavior.

Ok, open a FR for this. Thanks!
