    I recently set up a Mac Mini for a friend and in setting up her preferences I found an auto-type setting for fractions that I hadn't noticed. I can't remember where it is. Can someone help me?

    To insert a fraction I realize I can do so from the "Character Palatte" however now on her Mac when you type 1/4 and hit enter... ¼ magically appears. She doesn't have to click on the Character Palatte, search for the fraction and insert it... it just does it automatically.

    How do I do that!!! I can't figure it out.

    Auto substitution is usually program-specific. What program was your friend using?
