How would I delete an existing AutoCorrect entry?
You would select the entry to be deleted in the list of dei ned entries in the AutoCorrect dialog box and then click the
Delete button.
Click the Add button (AutoCorrect dialog box) to add the entry alphabetically to the list of words to correct automatically
as you type. (If your dialog box displays a Replace button instead, click it and then click the Yes button in the Microsoft
Word dialog box to replace the previously dei ned entry.)
Click the OK button (AutoCorrect dialog box) to close the dialog box.
Click the OK button (Word Options dialog box) to close the dialog box.
The AutoCorrect Dialog Box
In addition to creating AutoCorrect entries for words you commonly misspell or
mistype, you can create entries for abbreviations, codes, and so on. For example, you could
create an AutoCorrect entry for asap, indicating that Word should replace this text with
the phrase, as soon as possible.
If, for some reason, you do not want Word to correct automatically as you type, you
can turn off the ‘Replace text as you type’ feature by clicking Options in the Backstage view,
clicking Prooi ng in the left pane (Word Options dialog box), clicking the AutoCorrect
Options button in the right pane (Figure 2– 27), removing the check mark from the ‘Replace
text as you type’ check box, and then clicking the OK button in each open dialog box.
The AutoCorrect sheet in the AutoCorrect dialog box (Figure 2– 27) contains
other check boxes that correct capitalization errors if the check boxes are selected. If you
