Is it possible to disable auto correct (such as fixing capitalization) for a specific style template only? I'm interested in a solution for Word 2013.

This is specifically for auto correct, configured File / Options / Document proofing (?) / Auto Correct.

The purpose is to disable it for the style sheet used for code samples. Auto correct from int to Int is painful, but I don't want to lose auto correct completely.

MsWord - > In the Styles group on the Home Tab (Expand it)->Apply Style ->(Selected style is to be Normal) modify (do required modification)->Format->Language -> uncheck the spell check(if thats also not required)

for specific style you can check this link

This is already enabled, but turns off spell checking only (squiggly lines). However, auto correction (as configured in file / Options / Document proofing (?) / Auto Correct) is still active, e.g. changing capitalization and the beginning of a paragraph. –  peterchen Feb 7 '13 at 12:20

For disabling autocorrect option MSword -> file->option ->proofing

You will options to disable it.Also from 'autocorrect option' inside proofing.

That’s explicitly not what @peterchen asked for. He wants to turn it off only for a particular style, not for everything in the program. –  KRyan Aug 23 '13 at 22:51

Not sure if it's possible with templates, but you could use a macro for disabling the autocorrection features which you don't want on launch of the file and re-enable them on close.

Something in the direction like this:

Application.AutoCorrect.TwoInitialCapitals = False

or a little bit more general

Application.AutoCorrect.ReplaceText = False
