Canvas X Draw can automatically fix typographical mistakes as you type. The Auto Correct manager lets you select several automatic correction options. It also lets you specify common misspellings, typing errors, and abbreviations that you want Canvas X Draw to replace as you type.
When any text replacement option is active, Canvas X Draw checks each word you type. It corrects or replaces text as appropriate once you press the Spacebar.
Use the options in the Auto Correct manager to specify corrections you want Canvas X Draw to make as you type. (See Setting Preferences.)
Specify abbreviations, common misspellings, and other text that you want Canvas X Draw to replace as you type.
Use this feature to expand abbreviations for common phrases and long names that you type throughout a document: e.g., if you often type “Department of Agriculture,” you can specify that the abbreviation “DA” be replaced by the full name.
Auto Correct does not remove specified text from a document if you type nothing in the With box. Also, Auto Correct won’t replace spaces with more or fewer spaces (such as replacing two spaces with one space); however, you can use the Text tab in the Find palette to find and replace spaces.
Select the entry in the scrolling list and click Delete.
When you use the Spelling menu, (see To Use the Spelling Pop-Up Menu), to correct a misspelling, Canvas X Draw adds the item to the Auto Correction list. The misspelled word appears under Replace and the correction appears under With. If you make the same spelling mistake again and Replace Text as You Type is selected in the Auto Correct manager, Canvas X Draw corrects the error. If Replace Text as You Type is not selected, Canvas X Draw won’t make these automatic corrections.
