I am frequently working on patent specifications, in which there references to all those numbers and symbols in the accompanying figures. This also often includes something like "(c)". LibreOffice insists on converting this into the copyright symbol. I tried Tools -> Autocorrect Options -> Exceptions (words with two capitals) and added this (c). However Writer apparently does not recognize / remember this setting.

Er, I don't think (c) has two initial capitals.

The help section says, typing Crtl+z immediately after the (c) input reverts the autocorrection and adds it to the list of exception.

The first part - that Edit | Undo or Ctrl+Z undoes the automatic correction - is right, but I'm very surprised to hear any suggestion of adding something to the list of exceptions.

Yet, Writer does NOT remember this.

I think that is as intended.

Is there a way to make this exception "permanent" (until a time when I choose to change the setting)?

o Go to Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Replace.
o Scroll down to and select the line showing the unwanted correction.
o Click Delete.
VoilĂ !

When you want to reinstate it:
o Select the copyright symbol in your text.
o Go to Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Replace; notice that the symbol is already in the With box.
o Type (C) in the Replace box.
o Click New.

I trust this helps.
