I am frequently working on patent
specifications, in which there references to all
those numbers and symbols in the accompanying

"(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.
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.
