The feature is disabled by default and must be enabled at Settings » Autocomplete.

Autocomplete recognizes repeatedly entered words, sentences and your manual spelling corrections text during your normal work. You need to type an entire sentence including a punctuation mark and either a space or carriage return.

After a short learning period, PhraseExpress will start offering to auto-complete such frequently used text.

Right-click unwanted suggestions to remove them.

You can also train PhraseExpress with existing Word documents or sent Outlook emails to get instant suggestions based on what you have written earlier. It will be as if PhraseExpress has known you forever.

To train the AutoComplete feature with your sent Outlook emails or written documents:
  1. Open the main program window.
  2. Highlight the AutoComplete folder in the tree view.
  3. Click on the "Learn text from…" button and follow the instructions.
Suggestions depend on following parameters:
  • Minimum text length, as specified in the Autocomplete folder settings.
  • Minimum number of entered letters, as defined under Settings » Popup menu.
  • Text filter, as configured under Settings » Autocomplete

Password input is not recorded if the password does not contain a space or punctuation mark. You can exclude PhraseExpress from individual programs if you enter confidential text in those programs. This feature is also available if you right-click a suggestion.

Autocomplete is not available with Asian languages.

If you do not get any suggestions check the trouble-shooting section.
