Oxygen XML Editor includes an option to automatically correct misspelled words as you type in Author mode. To enable and configure this AutoCorrect feature, open the Preferences dialog box (Options > Preferences) and go to Editor > Edit Modes > Author > AutoCorrect.

The following options are available:
Enable AutoCorrect
When selected (default state), while editing in Author mode, if you type anything that is listed in the Replace column of the Replacements table displayed in this preferences page, Oxygen XML Editor will automatically replace it with the value listed in the With column.
Use additional suggestions from the spell checker
If selected, in addition to anything listed in the Replacements table displayed in this preferences page, Oxygen XML Editor will also use suggestions from the Spell Checker to automatically correct misspelled words. Suggestions from the Spell Checker will only be used if the misspelled word is not found in the Replacements table.
Note: The AutoCorrect feature shares the same options configured in the Language options and Ignore elements sections in the Spell Check preferences page.

Replacements Table section
The AutoCorrect feature uses the Replacements table to automatically replace anything that is listed in the Replace column with the value listed in the With column for each language.
Replacements for language drop-down menu
You can specify the language for the Replacements table, and for each language, you can configure the items listed in the table. The language selected in this page is not the language that will be used by the AutoCorrect feature. It is simply the language for the Replacements table.
Replacements Table

You can double-click on cells in either column to edit the listed items. Use the Add button to insert new items and the Remove button to delete rows from the table.

Note: Any changes, additions, or deletions you make to this table are saved to a path that is specified in the AutoCorrect Dictionaries preferences page.
Smart quotes section
You can also choose to automatically convert double and single quotes to a quotation characters of your choice by using the following options in the Smart quotes section:
  • Replace "Single quotes" - Replaces single quotes with the quotation symbols you select with the Start quote and End quote buttons.
  • Replace "Double quotes" - Replaces double quotes with the quotation symbols you select with the Start quote and End quote buttons.
Global Options
If this option is selected, the options are stored on your local computer, in a folder that is not accessible to other users.
Project Options
If this option is selected, the options are stored in the project file and can be shared with other users. Selecting Project Options will only save your selections in Enable AutoCorrect, Use additional suggestions from the spell checker, and the options in the Smart quotes section. Changes to the Replacements table are not saved in this page. To save changes to the Replacements table at project level you need to specify a custom location in the User-defined replacements section of the AutoCorrect Dictionaries preferences page and select Project Options from that preferences page instead.
Restore Defaults
Restores the options in this preferences page to their default values and also deletes any changes you have made to the Replacements table.
