    Autotext

    When the autotext dialog box is opened (Insert | Autotext | Autotext), the cursor does not appear by default in the "enter autotext entries here" field, as it has always done in the past. I have to click in the field to put the cursor there.

    Any ideas on why this is suddenly happening?

    Re: Autotext

    Just some guesses on where to start looking because I found nothing in the KB. It would have been helpful to specify which version of Word, also.

    1. Is there anything running in the background that might steal the focus?
    2. Did you install anything recently, especially an add-in?
    3. You could rename normal.dot & see if that helps. You could also start Word from Start/Run & typing

    winword.exe /a

    which starts Word without any add-ins & with a fresh normal.dot.

    4. It could even be something like corruption in the mouse driver, although I'd expect more symptoms.

    I know it's kind of frustrating when Word develops some new quirk and maybe someone else has some ideas. Hope this helps.

    I forgot to thank you! The fresh normal.dot worked.
