    cane

    I have just used the word 'cane' in another thread, and it got the dotted underlining as if it were 'CanE'. Can anything be done about this?

    Thanks.

    Sorry about the unhelpful title. Is there any way in which we can change our titles?

    I think it's a good title. At least you didn't write "Support".

    Select it and then click the Unlink icon. (This doesn't always work for me, but I think it's supposed to... cane, nope )

    Re: cane

    Unfortunately not- it's not case insensitive. Should I remove it? I don't want Canadian speakers to feel left out, but it's like COD.
