I'm writing a series, so I want to use my autocomplete list in more than one project.

1. How to I import/export the Autocomplete list from one project to another one?

2. Same with my Custom Spelling dictionary.

3. Same with my Autocorrect, aka Substitutions.

AFAIK, these dictionaries are Scrivener-wide, not project-specific. They should already be available in any new project in Scrivener.

The autocomplete box is not scrivener-wide. If you start a new project with the same names you have to input them all into the new project manually. You can't even drag and drop the names from one project to another. I flagged this problem up in January.

My bad, I was thinking of the personal spelling dictionary. Evidently autocomplete is one of the Scrivener features I haven't yet made use of! Can you tell me where it is set up in the program?
