Ok, dumb question.

I know this is most likely pretty simple, how come I can't find it?

I just want to turn off the auto complete while typing. Where is this??

Only if you don't ask it.

Because it is not obvious

2.Clear Enable word completion .
(Told you it wasn't obvious)

Argh, thanks.

I had been searching Tools-Options with a fine tooth comb. For some reason I thought Auto-Correct was just for misspelled words or something different.

Thanks a lot Very Happy
