Whenever I'm typing in a Writer document, a yellow box appears and makes a thesaurus suggestion to the word I'm currently typing. It's appreciated, but annoying. It blocks text I already typed, so i can't read that text. Also I don't need suggestions when I'm typing. Is there anyway in the options I can stop this box from appearing?

It may be Tools / AutoCorrect Options, turn off "while typing".

You were very close and very helpful. I went to Tools> Autocorrect Options as you suggested. I found the answer under the "Word Completion" Tab. I just unchecked the "Enable Word Completion" box. Seems to have worked. I wouldn't have been able to find it without your help. Thank you.
