If you use the AutoText capabilities of Word, it is many times helpful to obtain a printout of your AutoText definitions. Word allows you to print such a list, which you can use as a reference. To print an AutoText list, follow these steps:

  1. Select Print from the File menu. Word displays the Print dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Print dialog box.

  3. Using the Print What pull-down list, select AutoText Entries.
  4. Click on OK. The AutoText list is printed.

I'm trying to print out my AutoText and your instructions are not allowing me to print out my AutoText. I'm using Word 2010.

Wowee, I just want to thank you for sharing this tool tip, I had no idea you could print out auto-text, goodness me, so wonderful, I'd been photographing all building block entries and then typing to see what the heck they are, what a nitwit I've been - also couldn't read preview too little really, was gonna buy magnifying glass, but no, not anymore. I can see them, I can see them all! Yay. Completely wonderful. Thanks, just printed it out. Yippee. Have a good day.
