Auto Correct doesn't work correct-ly

Post by m.Th. »

We assume that we have the standard Autocorrect list in which (for example) we have „b&w” to be replaced by „black & white”.

Steps:

1. Select a file
2. Press F2 and the Edit window should appear (assuming that you have checked in Settings the option to appear the Edit window)
3. Go to with the caret AT THE BEGINNING or IN THE MIDDLE of the file name - NOT at the end.
4. Write in the place defined at #3 the text „ b&w ” without quotes and with the necessary spaces in order to have it as a separate word from the other part of the file name.

Expected: „b&w” should be expanded to „black & white”

Actual: Nothing happens

Note: The Auto Correct works correctly only if b&w is at the end of the text, thing which is misleading and confusing. There are many shortcuts which are specifically put at the beginning of the text (for example „Mr” to be expanded to „Mister”, „Ave” to „Avenue”, „Str” to „Street” aso.).
