Don't misunderstand me.

I'm not upset about having to delete the "(c) to copyright symbol" option in 
my autocorrect feature. I appreciate that many people prefer this behavior. 
I get it that developers have to make choices and they make those choices on 
the basis of what a majority of users want. That much I get.

Understand. The auto insert symbol most likely goes back to this 2002
OOo bug:
[Special Character Shortcuts]

The initial definitions for the autocorrect are located in the /autocorr
directory. They are simple ziped .dat files (DocumentList.xml is the
actual file) & probably could be modified & then copied across like a
standard template.

What I don't like is having to do it twice because neither AOO nor LO has 
all the features I need to get my work done, and that is because, for 
whatever reasons, the developers of the two office suites either can't or 
won't combine their efforts.

You might want to look at the archives of the AOO dev list. The early
posts regarding this issue provide an interesting read.

I wonder what "office suites" you are using. Neither LO or AOO default
to turning a (c) into a © - (C) does.

But guess what? Microft Word does it for both... (c) and (C).
