I have different machines running Writer but I also have a huge list of autocorrect options that speeds up the writing, such as shortcuts for writing greeks letters etc.

Instead of re-setting each option in each version, is there a file I can copy a paste between machines in order to have the same option? I mean the file that contains the options for the autocorrect function.

Thank you

Thank you, but even if I have some autocorrection options for english UK, there are no files in the autocorr folder... can I make one myself for this language and what is the format? (scv? tsv?)

In Linux Mint I have found a ~/.config/.../autocorr/acor_en-GB.dat file. Would this be the one? And why is not on Ubuntu?
