In Word, there are some auto-correct fields that I have changed. When I do that, some of them stay saved, but some won't stay changed.

I changed it so that 2 hyphens instantly becomes a dash instead of waiting until I type the next word; that change stays. I changed the ... to become . . . because that is required in academic writing; that change stays.

But some changes won't stay. Right now, --> becomes an arror. I want -> to become an arrow because the -- before the > automatically becomes a dash. I make the change, but the next time I go into Word, the change is gone. I cannot seem to get it to stay. Anybody know why?

Also, there are many auto-suggestion replacements that I like, but there is one that I really don't like. When I type 2005 in a document, it automatically suggests 2005-09-04 and replaces it if I hit enter. I NEVER use that format for dates, but I often am doing a form where I need to be able to hit enter after I put in the year. I cannot find a way to remove this one date field without disabling all the others.

Help!
