Default Initial Caps word20

In Microsoft word 2007 I would like to have each line start with a capital letter is there anyway I can set that up in the preferences so that it will do it automatically.

I did get the reply from Moonshine and I appreciate it. I have it set up correctly for the first letter of each sentence, however I am working with hymn verses and they are laid out in lines not necessarily by sentences and I'm wondering if it possible to capitalize the first letter of the lines?

I just tried typing some poetry in Word. Using the basic Enter/Return at the end of the line, Word automatically capitalized the second line.

"He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other soundís the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake."

Because of the Enter/Return, it treats the line return like a paragraph break, and thus recognizes the next line as a new sentence, regardless of the lack of ending punctuation in lines 1 and 3.

By the way, to AVOID generating an auto-capital on the second line, I would touch the SHIFT key along with the return, thus adding a line break instead of a paragraph mark.

If you're working with existing docs, they may have a manual line break at the end of each line. I tried replacing those with paragraph marks, but unfortunately that doesn't change the following letter to a capital, even with Moonshine's setting [which as far as I know is default] and closing & re-opening the doc.

I can't think of a way to fix that.

Use a wild card Find/Replace operation:
Find What: (^l)([a-z])

Replace With: \1\2
AND specify ďALL CAPSĒ for the Format associated with the replacement.

Notes:
The first line of each poem wonít normally be preceded by a manual line break. Its first letter will have to be uppercased manually.
The last line of each poem will normally end with a paragraph break, and not a line break.
