While I am migrating my business work to the Open Source Free
LibreOffice from www.thedocumentfoundation.com (I think the
better-supported version of OpenOffice), I do have Word 2010 to help my
kids with their schoolwork. We also have 2007 someplace, but I forget
which PC(s) it's installed on.
Anyway, in Word 2010, the old menu from Word 2003 and even before is
still there...it's just that things are hidden <smile>.
If you hit the Windows logo in the left, you get a whole menu, correct?
Then in that menu should be "options"
Then under the "proofing" selection in the left bar at the top is
AutoCorrect options. That sub-menu looks to be the same as it has been.
In Word 2010, there is a also on the "Insert" Ribbon something called
"Quick Parts" that allows you to save to AutoText. You'd have to see
what that's all about.
I hope this was some help. I think my Word knowledge may have peaked at
DOS Word 6 and then re-peaked for Word 2003, but I was stuck using
Office 97 for a very long time at work and never really warmed to it.
