Setting AutoFormat options
3 Click the AutoFormat As You Type tab.
4 The options in the Replace As You Type section control the replace-
ment of specific characters (such as quotes and fractions) and
character formatting (such as Internet addresses). You’ll probably
want to keep the options in this group selected, once you know
what they do.
5 The options in the Apply As You Type section change the text’s
paragraph style according to what you type. These options can
cause unwanted changes and might be more annoying than help-
ful. The option to apply border lines causes trouble for many users
because it applies a bottom border to the paragraph before the one
in which you’re typing. It’s likely that you will rarely use the other
options in this group, so you can usually clear their check boxes.
6 You should clear the options in the Automatically As You Type sec-
tion because they often make unwanted changes in the document.
