How do I turn auto-correcting bullets back on?

    I accidentally asked OneNote to stop autocorrecting by replacing things like
    - or * with bullet points. I chose "Stop automatically autocorecting" or
    something like that when I last made a bullet point. I found the autocorrect
    screen under the Tools tab, but it didn't have anything about bullet points.
    I also checked How do I turn this feature back on?

    I, too, accidentally turned this off and have been trying to figure out how to fix it. Finally did ... but the fix is not one bit intuitive.

    In Outlook, Select Tools, Options, and then the Mail Format Tab. Select Editor Options at the very bottom. In the next window, select Proofing. Then select AutoCorrect Options. Select AutoFromat As You Type tab. Under "Apply as you Type" ... make sure Automatic bulleted lists is selected. Click OK, OK, Apply, OK.

    Hopefully this works ... and I didn't leave a critical step out :). Good luck!

    Are you sure that you are posting this in the prper group?

    This NG is for *OneNote*, not Outlook.
