Autocorrect
« on: February 24, 2015, 05:06:40 AM »
I have just been responding to a post where C2H4 was referred to as ethane. I was trying to point out that C2H4 is ethene, but I found that my "ethene" was autocorrected to "ethane". Is it possible to turn autocorrect off, or at least prevent it from silently "correcting" chemicals it hasn't heard of? (Where did it go to school?)

Autocorrect works on your device, not the forum side. So to turn it off, you need to turn it off in your browser/OS.
