Create and manage different auto correction lists
When taking minutes of meetings using my pc or tablet, i use the auto correct feature to create shortcuts for the names of the attendees. For example _mch expands to mr. Chairman. Likewise, i create abbreviations for long, technical, legal or scientific words or phrases.
In the present versions of Word, all the abbreviations are put in one long list, which makes it hard to manage and remember.
It would make life much easier, if one could create, edit, delete and print multiple auto correction lists. One list for the meetings of the photo club, another for the minutes of the school board meetings. So, instead of one long list, give us the option to have multiple lists, each with its own set of abbreviations.
You should be able to do something like that with the Autocorrect backup macro in Support.dot, which you can download from Microsoft. I use it to backup my autocorrect entries and transfer them to different computers or Word versions. The backup creates a file called AutoCorrect Backup Document.doc listing all the shortcuts and words, so you could create specialized lists and use the restore macro to load them before your meetings.
I've used it up to Word 2013. I hope it's not one of the many useful features that MS has crippled or destroyed in the latest Office abomination.
