    Default "i" problems...Word 2007 query.

    Hi,

    I thought this would be an easy thing to find out how to do but I'm struggling!
    1) How do I set Word 2007 so that in the event of an "i" (as in "i went out") being typed it will automatically correct to "I"?

    2) Also, if I've cut and pasted text into Word and there are several such instances of incorrect lowercase "i"'s, is there a way to change all of them in one fell swoop?

    Obviously when I tried using the replace option it changes EVERY "i" not just the individual ones!

    Any help would be most appreciated!

    Thanks
    Mark

    hi !

    first of all, you should use a relevant text in the subject of the thread, fx. "Word 2007"....

    take a look at the settings in Word, → Options→Proofing,
    mark "check spelling as you type",
    →"Autocorrect options, mark "Capitalize first letter of sentences"

    Ah yes, sorry that was checked and it does indeed do what I was asking already! Oops...

    As to my second question though, any idea how to do that?

    If I ( i !!) want to capitalise an I as in I, I'm I'll. In the replace box I always put Replace {space}i With {space}I.
    That usually gets most of them, the odd one gets caught when I spell check at the end (which would be a typo).
