While it is possible to get rid of autocaps by modifying /usr/share/maliit/plugins/com/jolla/KeyboardBase.qml, a settings option would be much more convenient and accessible to users.

Im kinda split. I would very much like this, but also i kinda like the (due to word completion messed up) capitalization :D also my wife got used to see based on the capitalization that im using my jolla and cant write excessive replies...

I haven't minded the autocaps feature so much, but it's causing plenty of issues with external keybords (often locking to caps) on the tablet so a simple switch to turn it on/off would indeed be great!

As a workaround, you can use this patch to change autocapitalization settings on the device.

To be honest, I didn't know how to make control for the Jolla keyboard's own autocapitalization (i.e. MInputMethodQuick.autoCapitalizationEnabled), so I had to add an extra variable. Works well though.
