I'm trying to use Word's AutoCorrect feature to replace the space after certain words with a non-breaking space. I tried adding the pattern "theword " in the Replace field, but it refuses to autocorrect a pattern that ends with a space (the Add button becomes disabled). If I use the word alone, I get two spaces, one non-breaking and one regular space.
Is there a better way to do this?
Background: in Arabic, the word "and" is a single letter (و), and it's visually unpleasing to have it alone at the end of a line. I currently use Find and Replace to replace them, but I'm looking for a way for Word automatically add the non-breaking space.
