Is there a way for translators who were using Word previously to import their AutoCorrect list from Word directly into Studio?
The ACL file from MS Office seems to be a format that's not supported when trying to import an AutoCorrect file into Studio.
Does anyone have a workaround to avoid having to re-type each and every entry?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
About seven years ago (how time flies!!) I wrote an article on how to do this which I published here:
This is actually geared towards using AutoHotkey as this allows you to use the Word autocorrect features, and more, in every application you have on your desktop. It does contain links to extracting the authotkey lists so this might be helpful for you in any event.
I then, a few years later, published this one that explains how to use the import feature for autocorrect since it's not the most friendly feature in Studio!
Perhaps you'll manage to get some help from these.
Thanks a million for this Paul.
Unfortunately, we do not have admin rights on our computers and will not be able to ask our IT department to install plug-ins for a while (they're pretty busy dealing with confinement-related issues).
Your articles allowed me to at least give our translators a way to Print their autocorrect entries using Allen Wyatt's macro.
That's a start!
And I'm keeping them of course for later, when we actually manage to get AutoHotkey.
That's great... glad that helped.
