Throughout this course we've touched on the AutoCorrect feature in a number of different places including Chapter 1 where we saw how to use AutoCorrect to create your own abbreviations. But AutoCorrect has a few tricks up its sleeve than I want to make sure that you know. First, AutoCorrect will allow you to do emoticons so if I type in colon (:), dash (-), end parentheses ")", it turns into the smiley face, and if I do colon (:), dash (-), begin parentheses "(", you know Shift+9, then it become a sad face.
You can use AutoCorrect make Arrows. If I do dash, dash (--) greater than (>), it becomes a right facing arrow, and if I do a less then sign (<) and a dash, dash (--) and then space, it becomes a left facing arrow. If you do the same technique within equals sign (=), equals, equals (==), then you'll get bold arrows. Now come down here for Copyright, an easy way to add a Copyright symbol is to do parentheses, C, end parentheses, (c), and you can do registered and trademark as well, beginning parentheses, TM, end parentheses (tm).
To learn about the rest of the AutoCorrect Options, go up to the File Tab, go down to Options, go into Proofing, and then click on AutoCorrect Options. At the top, you can see a number of different shortcuts you can use. So by mastering this AutoCorrect techniques, you don't need to insert symbols when just simply typing will do.
