I'm using OO 2.4 on Fedora 9. I've used other versions and have always liked having Autocorrect replace my most common typos. Alas, there doesn't seem to be any appropriate tab on the Options menu for me to turn this on. Is there something special I have to do to get it to work, or isn't it active in my version?

Go to Format > Autoformat, and make sure "While typing" is checked.

Thanx, but it already was. Unchecking/rechecking it didn't do any good.

Have you checked everything under Tools > Autocorrect?

What does it say under Help > About?

Yes I've checked everything. What it says under Help, about, is the version number in my first post. How else did you think I'd gotten it?
