(Word 2007) How can I enable the spacebar to create a hyperlink

I have reinstalled Office 2007, and now a Word 2007 feature I use a lot is no longer functional.

It used to be that if I hit the spacebar at the end of valid URL text, the hyperlink would be automatically generated. That is not working. How can I enable this feature?

It could be an option in the word settings which needs to be enabled to work - I only have Word 2016 available and I cannot find an option anywhere in that version but 2007 could have had an option

The option could also have been added by a third party Add-on - these are quite often forgotten at re-installation time, and can cause this type of issue

Thanks. The link above is dead, but now knowing that I should search for "automatic hyperlinks" I found out how to enable it.
