Auto Correct like in MS Word
« on: April 04, 2007, 10:41 AM »
I just realised that although I don't always use Word to type documents, it would be great to have the AutoCorrect feature available for anytime I am typing.
e.g. if I type "doesn;t", then AHK would change it to "doesn't".
Has anyone created anything like this?

I have this in an AHK script which starts when I load Windows:
::doesn;t::doesn't
::wont::won't
::recieve::receive

Is there anyway to "extract" the autocorrect list in Word and use that in the AHK script or is there a better way to do this than just adding a list of words like I have done?
Thanks very much.

You could try skrommel's AutoClip: http://www.donationc.../index.html#AutoClip

It doesn't involve the Word autocorrect list, but at least it's supposed to provide an easy way to add new words.

 :) You can export your autocorrect settings using Macros9.dot included with Office.

It's described here: http://word.mvps.org...xportAutocorrect.htm
