"Why" Question on Office Autocorrect
"Why" isn't there an "OK, I accept this error you found. Now go away." option for autocorrect? I can't for the life of me understand what kind of user testing this went through that the lightning bolt hanging on the page didn't drive other users crazy too. Why the heck does a function built into Word, a default setting I think though I'm not 100% certain, trigger an autocorrect alert anyway? :huh:
I used the three dashes to create a line. Autocorrect proceeds to alert on it with the options of:
Undo border line? (No, I just created it using a built in Word function.)
Stop Automatically creating border lines. (Why would I want to stop doing what I just used to create what I wanted?)
Control autocorrection options. (I don't see an option for telling autocorrect to accept a creating a line line using a Word function.)
Surely I'm not the only one who has wanted something like this? We have the option of accepting a supposed grammar error. For some, but not all, of the alerts it is possible to start a new paragraph and make the alert go away. But not for a line, it seems to be between paragraph/formatting . . . rant, rant, rant . . . I just needed someplace to get this off my chest and Windows Secrets is on my short list of sites with great people.
If someone has an answer, I'm really interested.
