In Word 2007 I get a blue wavy line under most of the text like the green wavy line for grammar and the red wavy line for spelling. I think it is to do with formatting but I cannot find how to get rid of it - please help

    Thank you but it isn't the solid blue line at the start of a word with the lightning bolt option. It is just a wavy/zigzag blue line under most of the text in the document. Any ideas?

Hi dtennant

Blue lines indicate that Word has auto-corrected a word. To undo the change move the cursor over the blue line and left click the lightning bolt. Select 'Change back to'. Or to stop Word correcting that word again select 'Stop Automatically Correcting'

Does this help?

    Ah sorry thats the Format Consistency Checker. What that does is detect if similar formats have been used and suggest to use one for words/paragraphs which use very similar formatting ie font kerning, color, size etc are very similar. More info can be found at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/284956

    To switch it off click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Word Options. In the left pane, click Advanced. In the right pane, click to unselect the Mark formatting inconsistencies check box under Editing options, and then click OK.

WORD 2007: SHORTCUTS FOR SPELLCHECK


WORD 2007 TIP: HOW TO USE SHORTCUTS FOR SPELL-CHECK


Spell-check has been around for years; however, it just keeps getting better! Microsoft Office 2007 Spell-check is even more intuitive and easy-to-use. You'll find Spell-check by clicking on the Review Tab located on the Ribbon, and then select Spelling and Grammar from the Proofing Group. If you don't use Spell-check very often, you may have trouble remembering which Tab to click on (I know that I do).

As a trainer, I've learned that each individual works differently. That's why I like to present different methods of performing the same task, especially if it can save time and help a student work more efficiently.

I personally think it's much easier to simply press the F7 key to initiate Spell-check. That's because I favor keyboard shortcuts. Some students prefer to create customize toolbars with their favorite features. In Word 2007, you can't customize the Ribbon, however you can customize the Quick Access Toolbar:

1. Start MS Word 2007


2. Go to the Customize Quick Access Toolbar button
(It's located at the top left of the screen and it looks like a small arrow with a bar on top of it.)


3. Select Spelling & Grammar from the list.


4. You should see a Spelling & Grammar button appear on the Quick Access Toolbar.


5. The next time you want to use SpellCheck, just click on the new button you created.
Both of these shortcuts will save you time to help you work more efficiently!

Happy Computing!

I AMHAVING MICROSOFT 2003 WORD IT DOES NOT CHECK SPELLING. HOW TO MAKE IT CHECK SPELLING.


Select some text in the document that contains a known mispelling. Under Tools > Language, look at the box for "do not check spelling or grammar." If
it is gray or checked, uncheck it. Run the spell check.

This is a text-specific setting, like bold or italics. It does not apply to
a computer, an instance of Word, or even an entire document. This is
different from the setting under Tools > Options > Spelling and Grammar,
which applies to all documents opened (but does not override the
text-specific settings).

If this is the problem, you can clear the problem up by selecting your
entire document (Ctrl-A) and unchecking the box.

Please, if the problem continues, use Office update, or re-install the product.
Good luck!

Is there a free download of english spell check for acer


It's kind of a hack, but you could download Firefox, and go to any page with a large text area, and Firefox will spell check it for you. You'll lose formatting, but you'll know what's spelled wrong. I don't think it helps with grammar, though.

Spelling and gramer problem


If you are using Microsoft Word, the spelling is automatically checked and the text or word will have a red underline if it is incorrect. For grammar, the phrase or sentence will have a green underline if it is incorrect. You can right click on any entry and view the suggestions. It is actually a good way of learning correct spelling and English grammar. Hope this helps. Thank you.

The problem is called green geometry.There is nothing wrong w/the green pix tube.It is critical to get the green geometry

accurate because the red and blue convergence overlays on

the green.If you have more than an alignment issue,that will need

repair before adjustments are attempted.
