AutoFormatting: The Fastest Way to Format

If you haven't bothered to format your document at all, or if you received it in ASCII (text-only) format via email, Word's AutoFormatting feature may be able to handle the formatting for you. Among the tasks AutoFormat can perform are

  • Creating headings and lists, including bulleted lists

  • Applying styles to many document elements

  • Replacing ASCII text with custom symbols, including curly "smart quotes," fractions, ordinal numbers such as 1st and 2nd, em and en dashes

  • Replacing Internet and network addresses with hyperlinks (page 434) to the same addresses
