MS Office Word 2007 misbehaving

  dlguk 15:11 02 May 2014

Last night started to compose a review, knowing I had made a few typing errors I glanced at the screen-no correction, no red underline, just the junk I had typed. Auto correct appears to be working with the simple common mistakes. Word options seems to be ok, I tried a reinstallation, no joy.

Any takers

MS Office Word 2007 misbehaving

now we are not allowed to give it a smack you will have to threaten it with "the naughty step" to see if it then behaves.

Tools - Options - Spelling and Grammer - make sure the correct boxes are ticked - also check to see if you have lost the dictionary.

And ‘tools’ are where on the ribbon?

On 2007, try Start, Word Options (at the bottom), then Proofing and see if there's anything odd there.

I don't see anything amiss on there, can I send s/shots on here to let you see?

Apologies Fruit Bat for the delay in responding to your post, it’s a long story. So I followed your link and pressed F7, the first nag screen I was to the effect that no proof reading was installed, that only happened once. The ‘Check spelling as you type’ box is checked, I unticked then ticked again, no change.

Cheers Dave
