Answering my own question:

This bug report: 15690 <https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=15690> states that it is not a bug, next sentence just needs to start with a capital letter. 


I would still say it is a bug, as it is recognized as a sentence if previous sentence ends with anything but full stop. A sentence may well start with a number!


Best regards

If the previous sentence end with a question mark or an exclamation mark, then the sentence starting with a number is counted as a sentence. I am on Indy, 9.0.1, MacOS 10.14.2.
