This is about … that is, “three periods in a row”, but this is no longer a question, it’s an ANSWER! I spent (wasted?) so much time trying to figure out how to stop LibreOffice from auto-correcting three consecutive periods like … into a stylized collection of three tiny periods. I went through ALL the help files covering ALL the Tools - Autocorrect - Autocorrect Options and nowhere was this adequately addressed. Finally it occurred to me that the following “word”, i.e. “.*…” was the culprit. Yeah, the * makes it more powerful, I can infer that, but the help file doesn’t even address these wildcards at all. For goodness sake, this ought to be addressed somewhere, eh? Sorry, but I’m really frustrated over how much time I spent trying to fix/change a feature that was not what I wanted, and now after it all it seems so strange that this basic formatting functionality (how this * wildcard is working) is not addressed so people (newbies) can successfully find the offending autocorrect choice that they need to edit or delete.
Please add something about both … and the use of * wildcards in the Autocorrect Help Files! Thank you.
ps - It’s unfortunate (telling?) that I’m unable to add “…” as one of my Tags to this question.
