**Using Math AutoCorrect**

Type a name (choose one that will help you remember the equation content) and then

choose a Category for the equation. You can also enter a description if youâ€™d like and click

Options to choose whether the content is inserted by itself, or placed in its own paragraph

or on its own page. Click OK after you finish entering the information; the equation is

added at the top of the Equations gallery.

Using Math AutoCorrect

Similar to the functionality of the AutoCorrect feature, with Math AutoCorrect, you can

enter a few characters of a commonly used math function and let the program

automatically insert the entire function for you. Math AutoCorrect works only with Linear format

(meaning your equation needs to be all on one line), and the feature is only turned on by

default in math equations, although you can change the setting so equations are updated

anywhere in your document if you choose.

To display the Math AutoCorrect options, go to the Equation Options dialog box by clicking

the dialog launcher in the lower-right corner of the Tools group and then click Math

AutoCorrect. You can also press Alt+T+A and then click the Math AutoCorrect tab. The Math

AutoCorrect dialog box is where you can create the shortcuts you want to use when

generating your equations (see Figure 18-8).
