I type extremely fast but I do make a lot of typos. Is there a way in Studio to apply the autocorrect feature like in Word where you can teach the program common typos and correct them automatically. For example I almost always type the simple word "the" as "teh" and have to constantly correct. I Word I no longer have to but in Studio I do. I haven't found a way to add this. If any of you computer savvy people know how, I would really love to know.

Unfortunately Studio doesn't have all the features of a word processor.
I miss the autocorrection you mention, and also correction of 2nd uppercase letters. (THis is what I mean).

It does have autotext, which is useful if you have long words to type that keep appearing (this is a customised list), and there is also autoSuggest, which is similar but is automatically created from large TMs, but I'm afraid neither are exactly what you're looking for.

I'd love to have autocorrection in Studio.
Actually I logged in an idea at SDL Ideas requestion autocorrection for Studio. So please vote for it, if SDL sees that more people miss this feature, they may give it to us at some point (I know, I am an idealist).
