       Here's a suggestion:
           how about turning off these inane auto-corrects as the default;
          then if someone should happen to want any of them, that person
can turn them on -

       The first thing I do with any new machine or program, is to turn off
these inane defaults ...
          anyone with a grammar school education, knows re. spelling &

       And I wish someone would explain to me why these machines are
defaulted to the brightest settings -
            it's tiring - blindingly so - on the eyes to have that bright
light shining in them -
          set the brightness to the dimmest and it's more like reading a
book  ;-)

My gripe with libreoffice are its "stupid" algorithims that constantly find
false errors in what I type.

If I type *** as a break between sections I get a bold line

If I type cat --help

I get Cat --(dash)help

Is there ONE place where I can turn off ALL automatic overrides?

If I can't type what I want to type, libreoffice is a deal-breaker. I have
carefully searched all menus.

Not sure if you're still watching this thread, but poking around for
another thread I've just found that you can completely disable AutoCorrect
from modifying text as you type at Format > AutoCorrect > While Typing. It
has a tick next to it by default, but if you click that option the tick is
removed and AutoCorrect stops modifying text as you type.

I didn't know about that one before...
