SUMMARY

The AutoCorrect feature in Microsoft Visio works behind the scenes to produce attractive, easy-to-read text in a drawing while you concentrate on the content. Visio analyzes the text as you type and automatically makes a replacement, depending on the rules that you have set.

By default, all of the AutoCorrect options are turned on the first time that you start Visio. You can turn off any of the options that you do not want.
