I have tried all sorts of settings to prevent LibreOffice from changing (c) into the copyright symbol. So far nothing has helped. Setting it as an exception does not work. For reasons I do not understand the conversion is NOT made when I type (C) (=capital C).

What is the trick required to stop Libreoffice from doing this conversion. If possible, I prefer NOT to turn of autocorrect entirely.

o Go to Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Replace.
o Find and select the specific correction for (c) - at the top of the list?
o Click Delete and OK.

Remember that there are also alternatives:

o The automatic correction is considered a separate action from the space or punctuation mark or line or paragraph break that terminates the sequence and stimulates the correction. So you can use Edit | Undo (or Ctrl+Z) to undo the correction and keep what you typed - as long as you do so immediately the correction appears.

o Another technique may be not to worry about the change when it occurs and to replace copyright symbols globally later with what you actually want.

I trust this helps.
