Word Proofing Options
Word has a wide array of proofing options grouped under AutoCorrect, spelling and grammar checking, and writing style options.
You’re familiar with autocorrect on your phone and the inadvertent, and sometimes hilarious, assumptions that apps make. Word does the same. Those funny substitutions don’t mean you turn off Word’s AutoCorrect; it’s far too valuable to ignore.
- seven AutoCorrect options
- ten AutoFormat options
- fourteen AutoFormat As You Type options.
- replace straight quotes with curly quotes
