Is there any way to turn off the auto-lowercase setting? I have a character who I want to have a capitalized short desc name, but it keeps making it lower case.

I think it can be disabled by adding color codes. I think that works for shorts... Although it does not work for socials. Kind of annoying that dawn is smarter than you in knowing what you should capitalize and what you shouldn't. Especially for builders...

I can't seem to get this to work for long descriptions. I use color codes, yet it still auto-lowercases everything.

Don't have the source in front of me, but I believe long descriptions are automatically note formatted with appropriate capitalization, extra whitespace removed, etc
