MS Word - Options that help you as you type are gone!

Hello,

I have got a new laptop with Office 2003 installed.

I noticed that some of the options that I used to have earlier in other laptops on Word are not present here. I failed to look them up on the options tabs.

1- I used to type the year and the rest of the date is auto-typed. This is not happening anymore.
2- I used to type a word and it used to convert its first letter into a capital if it was the first word in a sentence. This is not happening anymore.
3- I used to press Tab button on a sub of a bullet and the indent used to increment by one. This is not happening anymore, instead, pressing the Tab button only adds a space before the bullet body but keeps the indent the same!

How do I get the options back?

Thank you,

Check the AutoFormat settings inside Word (Format - AutoFormat - Options) and check to make sure all the different settings you want are selected.

I somehow managed t get to the options of AutoFormat, however, I still face the same issue with Outlook editor. How do I change that?

Inside Outlook, try Tools - Options - Mail Format tab and ensure your settings look like the following attached screenshot:

I figured out what was wrong. My Outlook is 2010 while Office is 2007!

In that case, you will need to manually copy the executable Word file to the Outlook directory and overwrite existing file over there.

Probably, it reads the format and rules from Word.
