Re: Autocorrect is turning dont into dint. How to fix?

While we're having this discussion, could I share another wrinkle. The word significant. First, with nothing relevant in Edit Substitutions: With "Correct spelling errors as you type" disabled: cant —> cant (which is WRONG) significant —> significant With "Correct spelling errors as y...

Re: Autocorrect is turning dont into dint. How to fix?

Got it. That worked, Jennifer, thanks. I noticed in the 'Edit Substitutions' list that I'd also added wont → won't, so I followed your advice for that one too. Turns out it didn't work because the word wont is not red underlined, so the spelling options don't show when you type it. And it's not in m...

Re: Autocorrect is turning dont into dint. How to fix?

Disable "Correct spelling errors as you type", then type "dont" in the editor and right-click. Choose "don't" from the spelling suggestions. That will give it precedence over "dint". You should then be able to reenable the "Correct spelling" option ...

How to add back matter without it appearing in the TOC as...

Is there a way to add back matter (such as a list of my other books and a copyright statement) to a Novel with Parts, without these extras appearing in the TOC as Chapters? - just as Author's Note and Copyright, for example.

Thanks.

Interesting question, Sang.

MM, can a substitution begin with a blank space?

Re: Autocorrect is turning dont into dint. How to fix?

Thanks MM.

Jennifer, that WORKS for me.

I notice the autocorrection only kicks in when I type the next letter after the blank space.

Re: Autocorrect is turning dont into dint. How to fix?

Briar Kit, 1, To set up a system wide autocorrect, I highlight the word and then right click to open up a list of options. Unfortunately spelling is not one of them. If there's another way to correct the spelling list, I have yet to find it. 2. And I dont yet know how to edit the main spelling maste...

Re: Autocorrect is turning dont into dint. How to fix?

Really?

Is there no way to set "can't" as the priority autocorrect rendering for the letters c a n t ?

Re: Setting default presets in Windows - the Preferences screen?

Silly me.
It's in exactly the same place in Windows as in Mac.
The left-most button in the formatting bar.
Has a lower case a and a drop down icon.

Re: Autocorrect is turning dont into dint. How to fix?

A related issue:

I know the word "cant" is a real word but most times I mean "can't" (cannot). How do I tell the spelling list that this is my #1 priority version of the word?
