Building Blocks versus AutoCorrect
In Project 2, you learned how to use the AutoCorrect feature, which enables you
to insert and create AutoCorrect entries, similarly to how you created and inserted
building blocks in this chapter. The difference between an AutoCorrect entry and
a building block entry is that the AutoCorrect feature makes corrections for you
automatically as soon as you press the spacebar or type a punctuation mark, whereas
you must instruct Word to insert a building block. That is, you enter the building block
name and then press the f 3 key, or click the Quick Parts button and select the building
block from one of the galleries.
