Autocorrect changing between templates?


S

Shaun Allan

I was under the understanding that the Autocorrect utility
was independant of templates. It was just 'part of' Word,
so it didn't matter what template or document you had
open, the entries were the same.

How come, then, Usually the Autocorrect entries are as
they should be, but when I open a certain template to
create a report, it's changed?

AutoCorrect entries are language-specific. If you have a different language
setting in different templates, you will get different AutoText available.

I just discovered that the language was set to English US
instead of English UK. How would this change, cos I'm
sure it was set right originally.

Language settings act like font formatting and can be a part of styles.
Copying and pasting can import them into documents.

Cheers mate. I'll keep an eye on it. They shouldn't have
changed, as I'm the only one who has the write access, but
at least I know, so thanks!
