    Inhibiting SMART BULLETS (Word97/sr2)

    What's the key to inhibiting Word97's smart recognition of bullets?

    I have text where each paragraph is announced with a greater-than sign (as in replying to email).

    Darn it! Every time I tap the Enter key, Word97SR2 replaces the greater-than with a symbol that looks absolutely fabulous on the screen, but is a useless as a ... in straight email text.

    I can't see anything in Options, especially in Compatibility.

    I'm pretty sure you want to go to the AutoFormat as you Type tab under Tools-AutoCorrect. Uncheck the option for Automatic Bulleted Lists.

    I hope this helps!

    While you're at it, Chris, you might uncheck almost everything else under Tools/AutoCorrect/Autoformat as you type/ "surprise yourself as you type because we know better than you". <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thanks Phil. I've unchecked the first group, but I'm fond of the second group, especially Ordinals and Fractions.

    Actually, I keep those, as well as symbol characters & internet paths. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
