There are certain things that Word will do automatically, which you can choose to have so or not.

For example, the fact that Word can automatically start numbering for you might get you screaming sometimes.

This is called AutoFormat, because it formats your text as you are typing. But, you can choose to have Word not do this!

To change the AutoFormat options, follow these steps:

1. Choose the Office button ► Word Options.
