Tip 13. Use “Autocorrect” creatively

Lawyers often have to insert symbols like the Section symbol and Paragraph mark.

Manually finding and inserting these symbols can cause frustration and can waste time.

To get around this, you can use Word’s “Autocorrect” feature.

For example, you can tell Word to automatically change 2 keystrokes — say, “s” and “s” — into the Section symbol every time you type “ss”.

Try it now:

  • Make sure you have Tips Worksheet 1 open.
  • Follow the instructions provided on the Worksheet to complete exercise 5.
  • If you use a different version of Word that requires different steps, then search Word’s Help section to find out how you can quickly and easily set-up custom Autocorrect text.
