Spell/Gramer Check is Disabled in Word 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • The self correcting and overall spell check feature is disabled in a specific word document.  If I open an new document, the spell/gramer check is reactivated, and it appears to be by default.  If i copy clip any words from the other, deactivated document, it disables the spell/gramer check in this new document.  I can not even get the new document to acknowledge the mis spelling when I type F7, and hit the spell check.

    How do I get these files to reactivate the spell/gramer check feature?
