AutoCorrect and formatting support

When adding an AutoCorrect entry, I noticed that there is an option for “Plain text” and “Formatted text”. However, this option is greyed out and defaults to “Plain text”.
How can I enable this option is order to store AutoCorrect entries with formatting?

Saving AutoCorrect entries with formatting is only supported when using Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010 or when having Word set as your email editor when working with Outlook 2003 or previous.

  1. Type your formatted text, which you would like to add as an AutoCorrect entry, in a (new) message.
  2. Open the AutoCorrect dialog;
    • Outlook 2003 and previous with Word set as your email editor
      Tools-> AutoCorrect Options…
    • Outlook 2007
      Office Logo-> button Editor Options…-> section Proofing-> button AutoCorrect Options…
    • Outlook 2010
      File-> section Options-> section Mail-> button Spelling and AutoCorrect…-> section Proofing-> button AutoCorrect Options…
  3. Your template text will automatically be copied into the replacement text field.
    Type your keyword and make sure you select the "Formatting text" option to maintain the formatting.

Note 1: An additional benefit of using the “Formatted text” option is that it also allows you to create AutoCorrect entries which are longer than 256 characters.
