Description tommy27 2009-05-09 19:30:54 UTC
when you type a wrong word and right click on it and go trough the autocorrect 
menu, OOo suggests you some alternative typing, if you find the desired one you 
click on it and you set an association that is recorded. Next time you type the 
mistake it will be automatically retyped.

unfortunately sometimes you don't find the desired typing among OOo's 
In that case you may manually set the autocorrect association entering the 
autocorrect replacement table from the Tools menu.

OOo will open a table with 2 columns: left column is for errors, right one is 
for autocorrection. Unfortunately if you have already entered many autocorrect 
entries  the time to lead the replacement table will be very long....

my proposal is to add some kind of a form field in the right click autocorrect 
menu, just below the typing suggestions. The user should be able to manually 
type in that field the desired typing and set the error/autocorrect 
association. (if you don't understand what i mean see the attached screenshot 
example i made with some graphic editing software)

in this way you could enter a custom autocorrect entry without opening the 
whole autocorrect replacement table. This would be a time saver.

i posted a better screenshot which comes from Opera spellchecker OSpell.

the interface of the suggestion menu is what i'd like to see in OOo.

at the top you have automatic autocorrect suggstions and at the end you have a 
blank field you can fill with your custom autocorrection
