In Word, there is available a feature aimed at fixing automatically common mistakes that we make when we are typing our Document. Mistakes such as not capitalizing the Names of Days or forgetting to capitalize the first letter of a sentence and many more. Sometimes though, these corrections are annoying, and we want to get rid of them. How can this be accomplished? Just keep on reading the post below.
We must select the File tab, so we can move to the Backstage View as shown in the image below.
Once in Backstage View, from the left we select the category Options as you can see below.
Once selected the Word Options dialog box appears, where from the left we select the category Proofing. Once the category Proofing is selected, this is the area where we can Change How Word Corrects and Formats our Text. We then locate the area AutoCorrect Options and select the AutoCorrect Options button at the right as shown below, where we will be able to Change How Word Corrects and Formats Text as we Type.
Once selected, the AutoCorrect dialog box appears with the AutoCorrect tab activated as we can see in the image below. In this dialog box we can use the activate or deactivate the following commands depending on what we want to do. All needed to be done, is to check or uncheck the options that we want to use and then press the Ok button which is located at the bottom right corner of the AutoCorrect dialog box for the adjustments to take place.
Correct Two INitial CApitals: By activating it, it will change the second letter to lowercase of two consecutive capitals.
Capitalize First Letter of Sentences: By activating it, it will capitalize the first word of every sentence.
Capitalize First Letter of Table Cells: By activating it, it will capitalize the first word in every table cell.
Capitalize Names of Days: By activating it, it will capitalize the names of the Days of the Week.
Correct Accidental Usage of cAPS LOCK key: By activating it, it will fix any time we accidentally use the Caps Lock key, where we shouldn’t be using it.
Correct Keyboard Setting:
Replace Text As You Type: By activating it, there are certain words, or characters that when we type in our Document, they will automatically be changed to another word in our document. For example, if I type in my Document, the letters PP, it will automatically be replaced by Philippos Panagiotidis. We can also define our own Words Replacement, which I will describe in a future post of mine.
