In word can I take out all the fixes, capitalization etc ?

I want to use word for some coding. Auto caps and auto anyting messes up code.

I write little scripts and I want to have a explaination aboue and a "you copy and paste" section below that has real code, that will run.  

How can I put in a "non auto fix section" in a doc without trashing normal.doc ?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

You can define style named, e.g., "mylittlescripts" for your little scripts... It can have font Courier new, colored background or border, and, most important, unchecked Do not check spelling or grammar in Language dialog box.

So, when you start writing your code, switch to mylittlescripts style and you get font for scripts and Word will not annoy you - all in one step :-)

Your style will be by default saved in your document, not in normal.doc.

'how do I:

Do not check spelling or grammar in Language dialog box.

Well, I suppose, you have style for your little scripts. Now find that style in Style pane. Then:

1. right click on that style and choose Modify...
2. click on Format button and then Language
3. now you have Language dialog box - check field Do not check spelling or grammar while English is still selected (sorry, in my last message I was a victim of double negation - check that field!).

When you apply your style to a code, it will not be checked.

this clearly does help except the biggest thing is auto capitalisation

Ls and ls are not the same in linux !

Sorry, I have auto capitalization always off (and cannot imagine someone wants it :-().

Autocorrect options are not style-dependent :-(

Now some good news - maybe Exceptions at AutoCorrect can help you: Office ButtonWord OptionsProofing > AutoCorrect options > Exceptions. For a handful of statements it is ok...
