LO4 autocorrect always changed my simple fractions like 1/2 to the smaller 1 over 2 character. But LO5 won't. Have checked the AutoCorect list and it is only populated for English(USA). I tried to populate the Australian one but I don't know how put 1 over 2 in the Replace column. How can I get autocorrect working as I did in LO4?

I can add 1/3, 1/5, etc, to the auto correct replacement table, but its the formerly auto ones 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, that don't work and I can't add those to the replacement table.

Works here OK using v5.1.2.2 in en-AU. Typing 1 / 2 SPACE results in ½.

Thanks. That's how it used to be for me too. I have resorted to copying the compact 1/2 from previous documents and pasting it into the replacement table in autocorrect.
