AutoText, AutoCorrect and
Other Fancy Mouse Options
Microsoft Office also notices common words and offers to fill them in
for you. The most obvious example is the names of the months.
Try This: Play With the AutoText
you see as
you type the word February?
AutoText also inserts formatted symbols. If you type
(tm), Microsoft Office will format the text as a superscript. If
you type :) Microsoft Office will substitute a smiley face. It is the
Computer Mama's understanding that the symbol next to the smiley face
means SmartAss, which would be accurate for her.
Office automatically corrects a long, long list of the most common
spelling mistakes. Prove it to yourself. Type: hte and watch the letters
when you press the space bar.
