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.


Adding Exceptions to the AutoCorrect List

You can prevent AutoCorrect from correcting specific abbreviations or words that have mixed capital letters and lowercase letters.

1.

Choose *Tools - AutoCorrect - AutoCorrect Options*, and then click
the *Exceptions* tab.

2.

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
*New*.

Tip Icon



To quickly undo an AutoCorrect replacement, press Ctrl+Z. *This also adds the word or abbreviation that you typed to the AutoCorrect exceptions list.*

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.
Voilà!
The problem: there *** IS NO *** (c) in the replacement list.
(only (R))
I have looked at least twice. In all three languages I use.
About the two initial caps: in the exception section I have only two choices: abbreviations (with a period) or two initial caps.
Where else would I have put my request?


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 just entered (c) under "Replace" AND "With". For now, that seems to be working.
Although this seems to be a very strange behavior to me.

Thank you!
Thomas
