Other Shorthand Features
Capitalization options are built into QuickCorrect and AutoCorrect. Capitalize the first letter of the code for a lowercase entry when you want the first word to be capitalized, leave all letters in lower case when you don't. Capitalize all letters when you want to capitalize all of it.
For plurals, add an "s" to the nonplural form, even when the nonplural word ends in a "y"
Expand an acronym or word only when you intend to. Other shorthand packages automatically expand "ASAP" to "as soon as possible," but you run into a problem when you actually intend to type only "ASAP" and not expand it.
With AdvanScribe shorthand, the preceding slash or symbol is the signal to expand the acronym. Without the symbol, the "ASAP" stays "ASAP."

The AdvanScribe files attach to WordPerfect QuickCorrect as separate files, similar to the way dictionary files attach to spellcheck. These AdvanScribe entries do NOT become intermingled with your own personal QuickCorrect entries in the main User Word List. If you ever decide that you want to stop using AdvanScribe products, you simply remove the lists from QuickCorrect. Your personal entries remain intact.
Microsoft Word works a little differently. AdvanScribe is installed using an Installation Wizard which adds the words to AutoCorrect. The Wizard will also uninstall AdvanScribe without disturbing any of your personal AutoCorrect entries.
