I would like to use autocorrect to easily bring up one or more paragraphs at a time. Is there any way to have open office writer maintain the FORMATTING of the substitute phrase?

Have you tried AutoText?

Thank you for the suggestion. I have tried it, and while it does maintain the alignment and spacing (big improvement), I cannot get it to retain BOLD, etc.[/b]

When you clicked the AutoText button to save did you select New rather than New (Text only)?

To get the "Solved" in the title you need to edit your first post which I have done for you.
