It should be really easy to add words to the spelling dictionary for Word to autocorrect along the way. It is, but what I really wanted to know if it would automatically format words to have bold or italics also. Now that the word processor has replaced the typewriter, formatting has found its way into the display of companies’ and technologies’ names, and many take it to be just as important as spelling the company name correctly.
To add a word to text replacement:
First go to File -> Options
Then select Proofing
The Auto Correct Options button at the top of the page will appear
Press it to go to the auto correct menu.
If you notice, the Formatted Text option is grayed out. To enable it you, must select the word you want to format with the formatting already applied before you selected it. Then go through the preceding steps to add it to the auto correct list.
