Is it possible to disbale 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 autocorrect, configured File / Options / Document proofing (?) / Auto Correct.

The purpose is to disable it for the style sheet used for code samples. Auto correct from




is painful, but I don't want to lose autocorrect completely.

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

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
