There are a few words that I wish to remove from the AutoText word list in libre Writer. They are misspellings or partial words. Is there a way to open the AutoText list of words to edit it or to remove words I do not wish AutoText to handle.
You can edit AutoText entries by going to Tools | Autotext (Ctrl+F3) and select the entry you want to modify; then use the dropdown list under the AutoText button at the bottom of the dialog.
But you may be talking about the AutoCorrect function; you can also change that via Tools | AutoCorrect | AutoCorrect Options.

This does not work for me - the “AutoText” dropdown list at the bottom is grayed out.

A kinda kill-'em-all solution: just delete all files from the /autocorr and /autotext subdirectories in your user profile.
I found that deleting all files makes LibO crash after a short time. So I kept
which does not contain anything, this way it works.
Do we agree that at present there are no controls in the GUI to disable or edit AutoText? - I think this is bad especially in the case you use a system wide auto text generator like “AutoKey”, because both are likely to interfere.
I’d file a bug report in that case.
Why, Format → AutoCorrect → While typing to enable/disable, Format → AutoCorrect → AutoCorrrect Options to change. Maybe, not the best design, but I can’t imagine something better. Or what do you mean?
As far as I understood, AutoCorrect and AutoText are two different features. I’m happy with AutoCorrect, there is the control “AutoCorrect options” where I can add and edit AutoCorrect items.
This does not work for me with AutoText - as far as I found out till now.
