    HELP please. Where do I change the auto change that occurs after I write the date - 13th (for example ) and it immediately changes to a small 'th' set high - and consequently so does everything that is typed after it!!!

    It would help to know what software (and version) you're asking about.

    It goes into superscript mode to put the th at the top.
    It shouldn't stay there for the rest of your typing, but apparently that one does.
    Try pressing
    CTRL SHIFT =
    to flip between superscript and normal text.

    Thanks for that. That works, at least its something - but of course I have to do every time I write a date to make the change - and I write a lot of dates!! I dont have Superscript ticked in the Font Box, so I have no idea why it is even happening.

    Use the Tools| AutoCorrect menu option from the main menu. Select the AutoFormat As You Type tab, then in the "Replace as you type" section, uncheck the "Ordinals (1st) with superscript" option. (Alternatively, use the Undo command -- shortcut Ctrl + Z) immediately after the AutoCorrect takes place.)

    Fantastic. Thanks. That did it. Auto Correct. I didn't know where to find it.

    If your problem has been resolved, as the original poster you and only you can click the "mark solved" button at the top of the thread. This will alert others with the same issue that a possible fix can be found here. Likewise it will help to ensure that our volunteers focus on issues which still lack a solution instead of possibly wasting time here.

    Glad that it's sorted.
