Hi Chanelle,

Thanks for these directions.  I have Word 2007, and your directions worked for 
me, too!  

Great help!

Sandi

  Hello list,
  To not have ... converted to ellipses do the following.
  Press alt f and then the letter t for options.
  Arrow down to proofreading.
  Tab to autocorrect.
  Make sure that replace text as you type is unchecked. This should take care 
of the ellipses. If you don't want to uncheck that option there are two combo 
boxes to specify options. In the first, arrow down to select ... In the second, 
delete the ellipses character and write in ...
  Control tab twice until you get to the autoformat as you type tab. Uncheck 
straight quotes with smart quotes. I don't know what smart quotes are. Also 
uncheck hyphens with m dash. Uncheck the same boxes on the autoformat tab 
(control tab once from the autoformat as you type tab).
  I hope this helps. I figured this out just by playing around with the options.

  Chanelle

  Hi Em,

   

  I followed your instructions and went to proof but could never find the 
ellipses anywhere under auto correct. Do you or anyone else have any other 
suggestions? Thanks.

  Hi all,

   

  To change the ellipses, you need to remove the AutoCorrect entry for it.

   

  This menu is located under File, Options, Proofing, AutoCorrect Options.

  I believe the keystrokes for this are ALT+F to open the File tab

  T to open the options menu

  Down arrow, down arrow to get to the proofing tab

  Tab once then enter to select the AutoCorrect Options button

   

  Towards the bottom of that dialog box, it lists everything that will auto 
convert.  You can add things or remove them if you no longer want the 
conversion.  On mine, the ellipses is the fifth entry down, but that will 
change depending on how you've customized it.

   

  Note, on this same AutoCorrect menu (but on the AutoFormat tab) is where you 
can also change the Smart quote to regular quote conversion.

   

  Hope that helps,

  Em

  Hi.
  I can't be certain about the tripple dots.  I fix this every time I install
  a new version of Word but I never remember the exact steps I take to do it.
  I believe it is under the autocorrect option though.  I'm sorry I can't be
  of more help.

  Hi, Everyone,

  I have several questions about Word 2010 and cannot find answers.

  First, I use Window Eyes and currently cannot get the "page break" to speak.
  Does anyone know how I can change that?

  Also, how do I change the ellipsis symbol to appear as three dots?

  As answers to these questions may not be of interest to the entire list,
  please feel free to contact me off list at:

  Loralee.castner@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  Help would be appreciated.

  Lori C.
