How can we make My Study Life better?

Do not auto capitalize every word in a title

I do not want My Study Life to automatically capitalize every word in a title. I want it how I set it.

If I create a task with the title "Read pp. 1-17" it creates it as "Read Pp. 1-17". This is incorrect notation and not how I had it.

This applies to subjects, classes, tasks and exams.

        It's really annoying and grammatically incorrect to capitalize every single word in a title. English capitalizes the first letter of a sentence, proper nouns, and names only. Even in book and article titles, only the important words are capitalized, not "to" or "the" or "of." It looks ridiculous and it's irritating because I enter it as "Human Rights in a Global Perspective" and I get "Human Rights In A Global Perspective." Gross. No. Leave it how I put it.

        Keep the capitalisation in place - do not change it.

        Yeah, guys this is super retarded, I don't know why you even added this feature. It's only a practice in English and maybe some other languages, and even then, it looks pretty stupid. Let the users decide how they want their subject titles to be displayed ffs.

        This is also an issue in the web app.

        idk why this was even suggested!!!!! it doesn't matter! Mystudylife has more important things to do than this!

        Most words in titles are always capitalized expect for the articles ("to", "the", "of") but even those are capitalized at times so it is normal.

        When adding new classes which have several words, every word get automatically corrected to having a capital letter. This is pretty awkward in for example Swedish.

        I agree, it looks rather weird to see every word capitalised...

        In many language, including mine, the first letter cannot be capitalized even in titles. This forces me to write in English.

        Even in English, it looks bizarre: It capitalizes even words like "to" or "the"!

        because it looks stupid. only *SOME* cultures write *each* work starting with caps. most countries are used to a title like "The best app ever" instead of "The Best App Ever".
        ok, even if you like those crazy all-caps titles... A SUBJECT IS NOT A TITLE. it's just the name of the subject! let people decide what they want their subjects to look like. seriously, i find "English Language" retarded. it's much more logic when it's "English language". let people decide what they want. if i want those caps, i will press the shift key. not like it'a hard to do so.
        (note: i know the work "language" seems not needed here, but it's really needed when writing in MY language...)
