  • Question

  • I downloaded the free trial of Office 2010 Professional.  The spell check would not correct any mis-spellings in Word or Outlook.  I deleted XP from my computer and tried again.  No luck.  I removed the Office 2010 trial and re-downloaded- still no luck.

     

    Under outlook options/mail/spelling- always check spelling before mailing is checked.  When spelling and auto correct is selected, suggest from main dictionary only is checked.  If I select the custom dictionary button, and select new, I have an option for custom and exclude dictionary EN0409-

    I can't seem to locate the dictionary in my office programs.  Same is true for Word- grammar is corrected or noted wrong- but it will not fix any spelling errors, even if I manually request a spell check in outlook or word.

     

    Help!!!!!!

  • If you will install the Office, do not customize it, just install it completely. And when you check the spelling and grammar in ms word.It will work without any problem.

  • I started word in safe mode- as you had intructed someone else in other  post.  NOW spell check works in word- how do I fix this so that I do not have to start word in safe mode each time?

  • Hi Jenny,

    If it works fine in safe mode, maybe this issue is caused by some add-ins. You can disable add-ins in office 2010 to have a try.
