Recommended AutoCorrect Settings for Microsoft Word
Perhaps if you are just learning Microsoft Word, the default AutoCorrect
settings are helpful, but for those of us who have been using Word or other word
processors, the settings just get in the way. They create styles we don't want
and formatting we don't want and make assumptions they shouldn't make.
Most of the settings under the ToolsŕOptions,
AutoCorrect tab are okay. However, some people may want to turn one or two of
them off because they use certain words or phrases that are changed as a result
of the settings. If you continually type your company's name wrong, you can add
it as an AutoCorrect option here. AutoCorrect is nothing more than a simpler
version of AutoText.
Beware: Many people seem to think that the Capitalize first letter of
sentences ought to work on bulleted and numbered lists, but that's not the case.
Here's where we really get into taking control away from
Microsoft Word. On the AutoFormat As You Type tab.
I don't like my hyperlinks automatically turned into hyperlinks
because I am often doing desktop publishing and don't want the font to be blue
when the book will be printed in black and white.
I don't like any of the Apply as you type and Automatically as
you type choices either.
