MS Word Thoughts

  1. Stop auto-correcting hypen (-) to an em dash.
  2. And for cases that one does need an em-dash, set up auto-correct such that typing hyphen twice in succession auto-corrects to an em-dash.
  3. Section symbol § Unicode is U+00A7.
  4. If a table is inserted in a footnote, there is an empty space between this footnote table and immediately next footnote. That is because Word adds a carriage return after a table and presumably, it cannot be removed.


A quick solution is to change the font size for this carriage return to 1! (big thank to Bob Jones MVP, Office:Mac at
