Default Can autocomplete insert unformatted text into a document?

By autocomplete, I assume you mean AutoText.

AutoCorrect is most often plain text, and takes on the formatting of the
text around it--AutoText is style-dependent, and it will follow your
formatting, but only if you are using styles properly. A style is a
collection of formatting instructions--if your Normal style is 12pt, the
AutoText in Normal style will be 12 pt even if you selected the pre-existing
text and made it 10pt. If instead of selecting the text and making it 10pt,
you change the Normal style to 10pt, the AutoText will also be 10pt.

Read up on AutoText and AutoCorrect at these sites.

in 10 point. Is there any way of inserting the text without the formatting?

AutoText entries without a paragraph mark will take on the style of the
paragraph in which they are inserted. Those with one or more paragraph marks
will take on the style characteristics of the style in which they were
originally saved. I suspect you are using direct formatting and have one or
more paragraph marks in your AutoText. See
http://addbalance.com/usersguide/styles.htm for more about styles.
