Hi Thomas,

I just tried this on my computer by following the instructions in the manual.

To Create an AutoText Entry
1. Select the text, text with graphics, table, or field that you want
to save as an AutoText entry. A graphic can only be stored if it is
anchored as a character and is preceded and followed by at least one
text character.
2. Choose Edit - AutoText.
3. Select the category where you want to store the AutoText.
4. Type a name that is longer than four characters. This allows you to
use the Display remainder of name as suggestion while typing AutoText
option. If you want, you can modify the proposed shortcut.
5. Click the AutoText button, and then choose New.
6. Click the Close button.

I also downloaded the from the official website about a week
ago, so I don't know where you were looking.

Met vriendelijke groeten, Salutations distinguées, Kind Regards,

Good morning (past midnight again) from Japan
Am I the only one having trouble here?
Today I installed "" (still not available through the official LO
website!) on the note PC running Win7.
Nothing changes.
Although In spend hours trying to figure this out, creating new autotext
entries or categories remains impossible (buttons grayed out)
Yet, this works in LO3.6 as well as in OO 4.1

Am I missing something important?
Since I am writing books, having certain phrases or text blocks
available through autotext would be a GREAT help.

Thank you in advance.

Good evening
I am using LO 3.6 on two desktop machines (Win XP) and recently upgrade
a note PC (Win 7) to 4.1 something.
Tonight I tried to create an "autotext entry".
While I can do that in 3.6, I found that most of the buttons in the
autotxt dialog box in the newer version are greyed out.
Meaning, I can neither record a new text entry nor create a new category.

I do suppose, there is a trick to it somewhere.
If so, I would really like to know it, BEFORE I upgrade my two work
machines in order to prevent all the
trouble that come with "going back to the good old times" ...

(why does everything that was working just fine always has to change -
in often incomprehensible ways?)

Thank you in advance.
