    Autotext Smart Tag Not Popping Up (Word 2003)

    Hello, I have lots of autotext entries. In Word 97, when I typed *saw, it would pop up Scott A Willis. Now I don't get the pop-up message, smart tag, whatever you want to call that thing. Any ideas?

    Also, some of my pop-ups are working (for longer names) but it just pops-up and says "Press Enter to Insert" and doesn't tell me what is about to be inserted. Help help help.

    It's called a Screen Tip and/or AutoComplete Suggestion. These are enabled under Tools>Options..., View tab, Show section: ScreenTips; and Insert>AutoText (top checkbox).

    I get "AutoTextEntryName" and "Press ENTER to Insert" when the formatting cannot be represented in plain text (such as a table), but otherwise I see the beginning of the text rather than the AutoText entry name. None of my entries start with *, however. Do the other ones work?
