Do not check spelling or grammar

There is another cause for this message. Word 2000 - and I
suspect later versions - don't check the footer in your
document. This generates the message and so far I've been
unable to suppress it.
There is the added disadvantage that the presence of text
in a footer area replaces & suppresses the readability
statistics from the body of the document - unless someone
out there knows of a way round this. The only solution
I've found so far is highlighting the body and checking
that separately which is a time-waster.


box saying:
skipped.
specifically, how can this

Final note, the "do not check" attribute is equivalent to a font formatting
attribute. That is why you were told to select the entire document before
making the change. It only applies to the area you have selected.

Do not check spelling or grammar

In Word 2000 there was a setting under languages "Do not check spelling or
grammar". That no longer exists. Is there a field code that can be
inserted to tag text not to be spell checked? Are their other options?



Thanks, Will

On the Review tab on the Ribbon
In the proofing section
Click the Set Language tool
The dialog box and the feature is the same as the earlier versions of Word.
