Chapter 7. Putting Text Tools to Work > Making AutoText Work for You

Making AutoText Work for You

Although AutoCorrect and AutoText can be used in similar ways—cutting down the time and effort you spend entering text—AutoText really has a different function. Instead of catching errors in spelling, capitalization, and spacing, the focus of AutoText is simply to help you enter text as quickly as possible. AutoText works with the AutoComplete feature to anticipate the words you are preparing to enter and to insert them for you. By spending the time to educate Word about the terms, phrases, and descriptions often used in your documents, you can both save text entry time and reduce your margin for error.

Inserting AutoText Entries

AutoText gives you a long list of entries to choose from, including standard elements of documents such as the attention line, mailing instructions, company name, salutations, e-mail options (which include a complete list of the e-mail addresses Word recognizes from your Outlook Contacts list), and a Person selection, which lists the names of the individuals in your Address Book.
