Type a tick with Autocorrect

A quick way to type a tick character in Word.

Another great Autocorrect suggestion from Morris B.

… the one that I have found the most useful is to replace ‘./’ with a tick (wingdings 252 – or wingdings 254)

Using the fullstop/period is a clever Autocorrect prefix since that character isn’t usually followed by anything other than a space or a digit.

Morris’s suggestion is also good because the / character looks a bit like a tick, which makes it easier to remember.

Taking that idea a bit further ….

./ becomes  ü

.]  becomes  J   

.[  becomes   L

The square brackets don’t require pressing the Shift key.
