The AutoText feature is now disabled by default in Word 2007. Its successor is found in the ’Quick Parts’ section of the ‘Insert’ tab and whenever selected text is included it is now referred to as a ‘Building Block’.
However lurking just under the Word bonnet is AutoCorrect. You can get Word to trigger the previous AutoText icon by going to the Office button (top left of screen) and clicking ‘Word Options’ at the bottom of the box.
Once in Word Options screen select ‘Customize’ from the left side to enter ’Customize Quick Access Toolbar and keyboard shortcuts’ box.
Click the downward facing arrow next to ‘Commands not in ribbon’ and select ‘AutoText’ then click the ‘Add’ button.
Once the OK button has been clicked AutoText will now appear on the ‘Quick Access’ toolbar (top left of the screen).
