I agree with this request. When auto-correct was on by default in libre
office it was a bit annoying. Sometimes (many times) if I type something
incorrectly I notice it right away and quickly backspace and correct it. Then
if there's an auto-correct it slows me down. Or it auto-corrects to the wrong
word, and one has to tinker with the list and the settings.

On the other hand, such a thing might be a good way to create your own
'shortcuts' to save typing certain things repeatedly. For example, I spend
some time on a forum that caters to those that are gluten-intolerant, and one
can type gf and when the message is posted it automatically becomes the term
gluten-free spelled out.
