I have a horrible repeated pattern of fingers acting ahead of brain, such that I transpose two letters when typing. Most often, I'll reverse two letters in common patterns, like 'tion' at the end of a word is often spelled 'tino', so instead of 'situation', I'll type 'situatino'.
 
MS Word KNOWS it's wrong and underlines 'situatino' for me. The system is set to AUTO-CORRECT misspelled words (it will convert 'sugestino' to 'suggestion' automatically without me doing a thing). But some words like 'situatino'? Only one suggestion in the list, but it won't auto fix them!
 
Drives me nuts!
 
(Autocorrect == true && Suggestions.Count == 1) Sometimes it fixes it, sometimes it doesn't, so as a developer I'm irked at two different behaviours for the same condition!
(I just typed 'conditino' here and Word will correct that one too.)
