It's no mystery why "no one knows how to make autocorrections," the
functionality doesn't exist.  It's documented in the help files how to
something similar, but the necessary configuration tab doesn't exist on the
AutoCorrect Options control panel (there is no "Replace" tab available).

  Automatically Check Spelling

You can have automatically check spelling while you type and
underline possible misspelt words with a red wavy line.
To Check Spelling Automatically While You Type


   Activate the *AutoSpellcheck *icon on the Standard bar.

   Right-click a word with a red wavy underline, and then choose a suggested
   replacement word from the list, or from the *AutoCorrect *submenu.

If you choose a word from the *AutoCorrect* submenu, the underlined word and
the replacement word are automatically added to the AutoCorrect list for the
current language. To view the AutoCorrect list, choose *Tools – AutoCorrect
Options*, and then click the *Replace* tab.

You can also add the underlined word to your custom dictionary by choosing *
To Exclude Words From the Spellcheck


   Select the words that you want to exclude.

   Click the Language control on the Status bar to open a menu.

   Choose “None (Do not check spelling)”.
