Using Blank Word Document

  NSBT 11:49 15 Nov 07

I use Open Office

When I'm typing into a blank word document, the word appears for me, how do I insert the whole word instead of me tying it.

For example, if I start to type professional, when I type the letters prof the whole word appears in blue, if I press enter, the word disappears, how do I enter the whole word, instead of me typing it?

Have you tried the Tools>Autocorrect dial box where you'll find a whole raft of options and all will become clear.

Sorry, should be Tools>Autocorrect>word completion tab.

Hi Bretsky

I've followed your advice >tools > Autocorrect> word completion tab, however some boxes are already ticked, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do

Sorry if I sound stupid

No problem, just been into my O/O writer settings as above Tools>Autocorrect etc etc and I have Enable word completion ticked and Collect words and When closing a document save the ..... All ticked and then below that "Accept with" choose from the dropdown box which I have set the key "Enter" then when all done click OK.
