I’m having a very specific problem with autocorrect in SEW. If I want to use a word or spelling that is explicitly on Autocorrect’s list of words it changes, then even if I do “Add to Dictionary”, Autocorrect still changes the word every time it comes up.
I tested this in Microsoft Word (2010) and the same thing happens, but unlike SEW, Word has a way to edit the Autocorrect list. In SEW I can find the custom dictionary, but there appears to be no way to access the Autocorrect list, and adding the word I want to the custom dictionary does not stop autocorrect from continuing to make that correction.
I also tried restarting SEW after adding the word to the dictionary. I believe it could be fixed by making the change to Autocorrect in Microsoft Word, then uninstalling and reinstalling SEW, but I’d really rather not take such drastic action. I could also just turn off autocorrect, but autocorrect is still extremely useful and I’d rather deal with the problem than lose autocorrect.
The specific case here is a character using they/them pronouns. Autocorrect changes themself to themselves automatically, regardless of whether “themself” has been added to the dictionary. Because it’s a word that’s getting used relatively frequently, this very specific problem suddenly becomes much more irritating
Edit: I tried poking around in SEW’s program files, to see if I could find what file has the autocorrect list, but couldn’t find it. If I knew what file it was, I could probably remove this specific thing from the autocorrect list from there, but I always prefer not to mess around in program files if I can avoid it
