As I proofed someone else's document today, I found another good addition for Autocorrect. I'm confident in suggesting that it use "assess" almost any time I type "asses."


Roberta, thanks for this fine suggestion. Thanks to it, I've added "asses" to my Autocorrect list. However, in thinking about it, I realized I had to add these exceptions that contain "asses": "classes," "encompasses," and "embarrasses." Without listing those as exceptions, all three words would be misspelled.

Thanks for commenting.


Learn MS Word

Autocorrect is an essential tool in learning Microsoft Word.

Thanks for the post!


Autocorrect can be used to place the company letterhead on a document as well - logos and all. Select the entire letterhead, get into auto-correct and create a key word to mean - place letterhead here. I use 'ltrhd.' It's quick, easy, and because all the vowels are missing it will not come up in my text to give me grief.
