Default autocorrect for fractions

hey just wondering does anyone know how i can set up an autocorrect function in word that corrects ALL of the fractions i write? when i write 1/2 it autocorrects to and 1/4 does the same thing however 1/3 and other fractions wont do the same thing so they look bigger and out of place.
thanks

On the Insert tab, click on Symbol > More Symbols, in the Subset 'Currency Symbols' you will see the fractions, one-by-one, select each of them and click on the Autocorrect button and add the full-sized variant in the replace section - they will now always auto replace.

This works for me, using the fraction 7/13 with Word 2003:
  • Type the fraction 7/13
  • Select the number 7; click Format > click Font
  • In the Effects section, check mark Superscript > click OK
  • Select the number 13; click Format > click Font
  • In the Effects section, check mark Subscript > click OK
Take a look at my website http://msword.mscomputertrainer.com for more Microsoft Word tips.
