Autocorrect performs some replacements when creating a new document, but not when editing some documents.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open the attached document
2. type `:princess:` and space
Nothing happens. If it's done on a new document, the replacement is instead applied.
`:princess` should be replaced with `👸`

Still experiencing it on 220.127.116.11.
It's because language of your file is Italian.
If you type ":principessa:", it will work.
You can change language of your file towards English with: Tools/Language/For All Text/English (USA).
Could you give a try?
Wow, that does it. Thanks!
