Hello, writers,

Well this is an oddity! Itâs not really an issue, but I wanted to see if anyone had any explanation â well, a logical explanation, beyond just, âthatâs the way Word does things and weâll never know why!â

This happens only in text inside a Text Box, not in regular body text. When I type the characters left paren-tm-right paren, Word auto-corrects it to the TM symbol, including putting it in upper-case. Excellent. But... I recently set the view options to show bookmark symbols, and so now I can see that Word is deciding to encase the auto-corrected TM symbol inside a bookmark.

But... this does not happen if I use the Insert > Symbol dialog and select the TM symbol.

Any explanation? What might Word be thinking (as if any of us could divine that)?

Just wondering,
-Monique
