How do I turn off auto-correct? I want spelling check, but not the automated decision to make changes. It seems to be specific to QB. Thank you!

Just keep typing.  The Auto Fill will only go in if you accept it.  If you keep typing it will eventually get to the entry you want or ask you to add it if it's new.

Hello there, tony15.

 

Thanks for taking the time to reach out to us. Let me help walk you through on how to remove the auto-correct in QuickBooks Online (QBO). 

 

QBO doesn't have the built-in auto-correct feature. To remove this, you'll need to turn it off on your browser's settings. 

 

For Internet Explorer, here's how:

  1. Click on Tools, and go to Internet Options.
  2. Select the Programs tab.
  3. Click Manage add-ons.
  4. In the left-hand column, click Spelling Correction.
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the window and uncheck the box beside Enable spelling correction.
  6. Click Close

For Google Chrome, you can check this article on how to disable the built-in Spell checker

 

By following the steps above, the auto-correct should now be disabled. Don't hesitate to leave a comment below if you have additional questions about the auto-correct. I'll be around to help.

QB 2018 Premier: Spell check "Ignore All" does not work. In Edit>Preferences>My Preferences there is no reference to Spell check at all to be able to turn it off.

 

Is it possible to import another language for spell checking when I need it?  In my case Italian for time sheets and invoices.

Hi, @Italian Law.

 

I'll be more than happy to help you turn off spell-check in your QuickBooks.

 

Here's how:

     1. Go to the Edit menu.

     2. Select Preferences, then click Spelling.

     3. Under My Preferences window, unchecked Always check spelling.

     4. Click OK.

 

When adding another language in your QuickBooks, we'll have to change the Region and Language settings of your computer. This way, we'll be able to have your timesheets and invoices displayed in Italian characters. I'll guide you how:

 

  1. Click the Start button, and then type in Control Panel.
  2. Choose Clock, Language, and Region, then click Change Location.
  3. In Home Location, select Italy.
  4. On the Administrative tab, select Change System Locale, then choose Italy.
  5. Select Apply, then click OK.
  6. Reboot the computer.

 

Re-open your QuickBooks and check if your timesheets and invoice are already in Italian characters.
