    I have tried MS help and Google but cannot solve this minor problem.

    MS Word insists on making fractions such as "1/2" into tiny little numbers that are too small to read and not aligned with the following words. I cannot stand this and think it is caused by autoformatting which I did not turn on and have not been able to turn off.

    Is there some way to make my fractions in documents appear in normal sized fonts?

    Thanks

    On the Toolbar click Format > Autoformat > Options. In the Autocorrect window that opens click the Autoformat tab, and uncheck the Fractions box. Also click the Autoformat as you type tab and uncheck the Fractions box there. OK twice to exit.

    Anytime Autocorrect does something that you are not happy with, you can revert it if you immediately press Ctrl-Z.

    There are times I want Autocorrect to do what it does, and there are times that I wish it hadn't. By keeping it on, I can selectively revert the few times I don't want the action.
