We want to let you know that the Word team has heard your feedback, and they’re planning to restore right-click access to AutoCorrect options in Word 2016. If you’re an Office 365 subscriber, you should see this change in a future update.
As always, thanks for your feedback. We appreciate it!Anonymous commented
I purchased TWO 2016 Microsoft Office -- one for home and one for work. I am a professional transcriber/editor/proofreader. I use the AutoCorrect all the time! I repeat what James said, as he so accurately
described it: "if you misspelled a word, you could right click, and there, in the right-click menu, was an option for "Auto-Correct" with a fly-out menu to the right, with suggested words, and at the bottom "Autocorrect options." This menu allowed me to speed up my typing by adding corrections to the Autocorrect dictionary on the fly, letting Word learn my typing style and common mistakes."
It is NOT time-productive and is NOT cost-productive to have to keep correcting the "red-squiggly" word -- KNOWING THAT I HAVE TO CORRECT IT EVERY TIME!!!!
There are hundreds of complaints on this subject. WHEN are you going to fix this? Kindly advise. Thank you!!!
