Trouble? If you see a blue button with a lightning bolt, move the pointer slightly to the
right so that only the rectangle is visible, and then continue with the next step.
2. Point to the blue rectangle below “corrects.” The blue rectangle is replaced by the
AutoCorrect Options button and the entire word “corrects” is highlighted.
3. Click the AutoCorrect Options button . A menu with commands related to
AutoCorrect appears. You could choose to change “corrects” back to “corects.” You could
also tell AutoCorrect to stop automatically correcting “corects.” This second option might
be useful if you found that AutoCorrect continually edited a word, such as a brand name or
technical term, which was in fact spelled correctly. In the “corects” example, the change
made by AutoCorrect is acceptable, so you can simply close the AutoCorrect menu.
4. Click anywhere in the document. The AutoCorrect menu closes.
Correcting Spelling and Grammar Errors
After you verify that AutoCorrect made changes you want, you should review your docu-
ment for wavy underlines. Again, the red underlines indicate potential spelling errors,
while the green underlines indicate potential grammar or punctuation problems. In the
following steps, you will learn a quick way to correct such errors.
To correct spelling and grammar errors:
1. Position the I-Beam pointer over the word “commen,” and then click the right mouse button.
A shortcut menu appears with suggested spellings. See Figure 1-20.
