Troubleshooting

Finding Obscure AutoCorrect Entries

Q1:A rogue AutoCorrect entry is causing unwanted text to appear in my documents, but I can't find the offending entry in the AutoCorrect list.
A1: Most of the time, it's fairly easy to figure out which entry is causing the problem. Unfortunately, AutoCorrect isn't always so simple. In particular, note that AutoCorrect entries can have embedded spaces so, for example, an entry for any time might correct to anytime. That behavior can be puzzling until you realize that you might be the victim of an AutoCorrect entry that begins with "any".

Cutting Text Clears the Redo List

Q1:I used Word's multiple-level Undo capability to roll back a large number of changes, and then cut a block of text. But when I wanted to restore my document to its previous state, the Redo button was grayed out.
A1: Did you save your changes before you performed the Undo operation? If so, exit the document without saving, and restore your saved copy. If not, you're out of luck. When you use Word's multilevel Undo, you can copy anything you want to the Clipboard; if you use the Cut command, you wipe out the Redo list, and nothing will bring it back.
