Small problem in Word

Hi, The problem I've got is that, when I'm typing in Word, a capital letter starts each line of script without me touching the the 'shift' button. It's more annoying than anything else, especially if I'm in a hurry.
Is there a way to remedy this?

Check the settings in AutoCorrect and untick Capitalize the first letter of sentences.

Sorry to be rather vague - I'm using Word 2007 and it is (a lot) different.

If you end each line with the "Enter" key, you are creating a new paragraph. Hence the next line is
a new sentence and all sentences begin with a capital letter.
You can use the "Shift+Enter" key to make a line break and then the first word in the next line will
not be capitalized

It is by design.

If you are developing script then I would suggest using Note Pad and not Word.

Sorry my first line is incorrect, I was thinking of something else.

VoG™,
I'm using Office XP Pro and your remedy worked. Thanks to all who replied so quickly.

If you use Word-wrap the second and subsequent lines will not be capitalised - unless you start a new sentence on a new line.
