AutoCorrect entries

AutoCorrect is a feature to automatically correct words as you type. You can add entries to the AutoCorrect function to customize the way that OpenOffice.org operates.

The author has not been able to find a way of importing Microsoft Office AutoCorrect entries into OpenOffice.org. A thread discussing this problem can be viewed at: https://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10248.

Information from that thread is copied below, because it is reportedly possible for you to import the “first hundred or so” entries using this information.

There is a Word macro available from https://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Customization/ExportAutocorrect.htm for creating a Word document with the AutoCorrrect entries.

OOo AutoCorrect files are typically stored in ./user/autocorr/acorrXXXX.dat (where XXXX corresponds to the number for a given locale).

TIP

You can get a list of locale numbers from Microsoft Office Online:
https://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/HP052590231033.aspx

These files are zipped and contain the file DocumentList.xml (if no AutoCorrect entries have been created the file will be empty) which looks like:

<block-list:block-list>
<block-list:block block-list:abbreviated-name="(C)" block-list:name="©"/>
<block-list:block block-list:abbreviated-name="yuor" block-list:name="your"/>
</block-list:block-list>

So it would not be too difficult to create a text file to look like this and to zip it into a acorrXXXX.dat file.
