DocTools AddAutoCorrect

Version Release date Changes

DocTools CrossReferenceManager

Version Release date Changes
2.3 April 15, 2017 Changed to handle bug in Word 2013 and Word 2016 that resulted in “Compile error” when Language for non-Unicode programs was set to e.g. Chinese or Korean. The language setting is set via Control Panel > Region dialog box > Administrative tab > Change system locale.

Define Custom Cross-reference Texts: To make the special characters work with e.g. Asian system language settings,  all buttons for special characters now insert a visible placeholder as was the case for most of the characters in earlier versions. Nonbreaking Space now inserts <s>,  En Dash inserts <en> and Em Dash inserts <em>. Previously, those characters were inserted as normal characters.  This change also  makes it possible to distinguish those special characters from normal spaces and hyphens in the dialog boxes. All the placeholders are automatically replaced with the real characters when using the custom texts to insert cross-references. You can see an overview of all the placeholders via the dialog box.

Custom texts you have defined in an earlier version of DocTools CrossReferenceManager will still work. You may, however, edit existing custom texts to use the new placeholders it you wish.

In addition the the changes described above, corrections have been made to fix a few minor issues.

2.22 November 20, 2016 Correction made to make the add-in fully compatible with 64-bit versions of Office.
2.2 October 2, 2016 New option added: “Set Cross-reference Defaults” > “Inserted cross-reference replaces selection when possible”. The option lets you determine what happens to selected text when you insert a cross-reference via the “Insert Cross-reference” dialog box.

Correction of handling of some types of cross-references to certain custom headings.

2.16 September 13, 2016 Correction of handling of trial version in order to prevent problems with too short trial period in certain regions. This change only affects the trial version.
2.15 September 10, 2016 Minor change to allow insertion of paragraph using Enter key in form fields in documents protected for forms with a password (no influence on other documents).
2.1 August 26, 2016 Correction to handling of check box and text box for “Separator numbers with” (only related to cross-references to “Number (full context)”.

DocTools HideSpellingSuggestions

Version Release date Changes
1.3 March 23, 2015 First version published on this website.

NOTE: The HideSpellingSuggestions add-in needs to adjust the menu that appears when you right-click in text marked as a spelling error. A bug in Word 2016 that has been present since the first release of Office 2016 has prevented such adjustments from working. The bug has been fixed. The fix was first included in build number 16.0.6568.2016 that was released in February 2016. You will find the current build number of your Word version via File > Account > Version (in the right side of the dialog box).
