Not familiar with AutoCorrect and Auto Text?

These two Word features eliminate the need to manually type commonly used text or phrases into each new Word document.

  • AutoCorrect completes words, phrases, or sentences after you've typed a few characters.

  • AutoText stores blocks of formatted text that you can select and insert.

These functions are easy to use; kind of like clicking a favorite on your phone to make a call instead of entering in the number.

Once you start to use them, you forget how much they help you until that fateful moment when you start up your new computer or open Office after a version upgrade.

That’s when you learn that you’ve lost all of your AutoCorrect and AutoText entries, unless you have AuthorTec AutoCorrect.

Because both the AutoCorrect and AutoText functions are buried within Word these days, we include a bonus Instruction Set to help you get started, at the end of our AuthorTec AutoCorrect Tutorial.
