Microsoft Word and TypeIt4Me

FAQ: Microsoft Word keeps deleting the space that triggers my expansion. Is there a way to stop this?

MS Word can be a bit too smart for its own good, sometimes. Thankfully, this particular issue is an easy thing to fix. Open Word Options > Advanced > Cut, Copy and Paste then untick the Use Smart Cut and Paste checkbox. (In older versions of Word, you can get to this option via the Edit menu).
