Microsoft Word settings (Tedds for Word only)
To simplify creating your own calculations, we recommend that you adjust some Microsoft Word settings. See the detailed instructions for adjusting Microsoft Word settings in the following paragraphs.
The following only applies to Tedds for Word.
Stop automatic capitalization
By default, Word capitalizes the first character of the first word of a paragraph or sentence. For calculations, this setting can be counter-productive. To stop automatic capitalization, follow the instructions below.
- Go to File > Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect options.
- Ensure that the Capitalize first letter of sentences option is not selected.
- Ensure that the Correct TWo INitial CApitals option is not selected.
- Click OK.
Set up AutoText
The AutoText feature of Word allows you to store and reuse formatted text (and graphics), accessing them through a few simple keystrokes. Therefore, AutoText may be useful when defining variable names and units.
- Type the text that you want to save, and format it correctly. For example, N/mm 2
- Highlight the formatted text.
- Go to Insert > Text > Quick parts > AutoText > Save selection to AutoText gallery.
