Unlock for continued use with a License Key

There is a one-time fee to obtain a license key that will activate AuthorTec AutoCorrect to run indefinitely with the version of the software available
at the time of purchase.

If AuthorTec AutoCorrect is already installed on your computer:

  • because you were using it for free,

  • then all you need to do is activate it with the license key you will receive upon purchasing a license. 


How to Access & Use

  1. Open Word and click the Developer tab along the top of your screen to access the AuthorTec AutoCorrect AC and AT Backup/Restore button.

  2. Use AuthorTec AutoCorrect to backup your AutoCorrect and AutoText entries; restore them when the time comes; or export them to share with a colleague.

  3. Learn how to use AuthorTec AutoCorrect with our Tutorial and by using the instructions that are built into the software. If you don’t see your Developer tab, please follow the steps in our Tutorial to allow it to display.


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 with them, at the end of our AuthorTec AutoCorrect Tutorial.
