I want to insert a new AutoText entry based on my current selection. So, on the menu,, I go to Tools | AutoText, and the dialog comes up. And... I'm stumped. There is no "New" button. Nor does the AutoText menubutton have a New item. This, while the online help suggests it should exist:
only if I type a name in the name box _and_ have something typed in the shortcut box do the New entries on the AutoText menu button.
This is confusing, especially for new users (excuse the pun). People do not expect menu items to silently appear or disappear because of text typed in a textbox.
Instead, the "New" and "New (text only)" entries should _always_ appear, but be grayed-out before they are applicable. Alternatively, they shouldn't be grayed out, but trigger an error message explaining why both a name and a shortcut are necessary for creating a new entry.
