Can AutoReplaceTriggerActivator be set to the down arrow key?

Currently you have no way to specify automatic case setting for tokens that are matched to a regular expression. (A feature I'm hoping you will add at some point) so I am making use of AutoReplaceTriggers to uppercase the most commonly used such tokens.

These work fine for Space, Tab and Enter but if the user simply presses the down arrow after one of these keywords then the trigger does not fire.

When setting AutoReplaceTriggerActivator I have to specify a 'character' rather than a 'key' so is there any way to specify a key that does not generate a character?

Thanks

Hi Mike,

Sorry but auto-replace triggers only work with typable characters.  There isn't a way to get them working with non-character producing keys like arrow keys.

Is there a feature request open to add an 'AutoCase' option for Tokens defined using RegEx patterns?

If not, could you please open one.
The idea is to be able to specify AutoCase=Upper, Lower, and maybe Proper.

Hi Mike,

Ok we will add it to the TODO list if it's not already on it.
