The help section says, typing Crtl+z immediately after the (c) input

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.
Adding Exceptions to the AutoCorrect List
You can prevent AutoCorrect from correcting specific abbreviations or
words that have mixed capital letters and lowercase letters.
Choose *Tools - AutoCorrect - AutoCorrect Options*, and then click
the *Exceptions* tab.
Do one of the following:
Type the abbreviation followed by a period in the *Abbreviations (no
subsequent capital) *box and click *New*.
Type the word in the *Words with TWo INitial CApitals *box and click
To quickly undo an AutoCorrect replacement, press Ctrl+Z. *This also
adds the word or abbreviation that you typed to the AutoCorrect
Here is the copy from the Help section. It says there, the Ctrl+Z action
adds something to the excecption list.
o Go to Tools | AutoCorrect Options... | Replace.
o Scroll down to and select the line showing the unwanted correction.
o Click Delete.
The problem: there *** IS NO *** (c) in the replacement list.
I have looked at least twice. In all three languages I use.

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.
Although this seems to be a very strange behavior to me.
