Don’t Forget The AutoCorrect Option In Word 2007
A sometimes overlooked advantage of Word is it’s handy AutoCorrect feature buried within the Proofing Tools. If you use the word processor often you may find this feature can save a lot of time – especially with long words or phrases which are often repeated. By assigning a small memorable reference to a longer word or phrase Word can automatically replace the reference with the longer piece of text, for example to replace the sequence “(c)” with “Copyright 2010”.
When deciding a short phrase to use – remember to think carefully about making it something unique – otherwise you will end up with AutoCorrect madness when you type your documents.
To access the AutoCorrect options heading into the Word, then click on the Start Orb then click on the small “Word Options” button at the bottom of the page. Click on “Proofing” then click on the “AutoCorrect Options” button. Head down to the section “Replace text as you type” – ensure it is checked then type your short reference in the field labelled “Replace” and the longer phrase in the “With” field. Finally, click on Add. You should now be good to go.
