[Solved] Changing American English to British

Postby ForumPerson » Fri May 17, 2019 8:30 am

How do I stop it from changing an Americanism- sidewalk- to a British version- pavement. I'm in Australia so we'd say footpath anyway but I'm trying to quote an American. Thanks

Try /Tools /Autocorrect options : Replace tab, find sidewalk in left column, highlight it, and press the delete button
