Here, I didn't have to have a document open.  Well, I did have a blank
page there...  The settings were applied to the program defaults.  I
closed down and re-opened it, and it carried on working
as how I'd last set it (not making numbered lists out of numbered items
that I'd typed on the page).

Yes, it is a bit peculiar as to what's per-document, or not.  Yes, it's
not brilliantly named, as it's not necessarily a "correction."  Other
programs might have called that "auto replace."

 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
