Microsoft Word 2000 spell check, Ctrl+F not working right
  

Hello,


I have a word document that has been passed back and forth from a few different PCs.

here are the stats.

times new roman
double spaced
12 font
Normal


Ok, almost everything is underlined in green. The spellcheck only picks up words that I've just typed on one computer, but not words from another computer.

Also, if I copy the document into another new blank word doc.. the problem follows the text that I'm copying over.

So, the only way I've figured to fix the problem is to re-type the entire 80+ page paper which I recently just gave up on after typing 20 pages, and taking 2 hours.

Anyone shed some light on this problem? Even if I do a cntrl F and type in a word that is right in front of me on the screen, it doesnt' find it. It doesnt' find the most common words in the dictionary for spell check either.



Thanks,
Todd

I finally figured out that if you go to full screen and right click on the screen and then select "Quick Help", you will be able to use all the help functions keys.

When you run spell check and it doesn't work as expected, take the following steps.
  1. Hit Ctrl+A to select the entire document and then, from the menu, choose Tools->Language->Set Language. Choose your language, and uncheck the two options at the bottom. Hit OK.


    Tip: If you spellcheck after performing these steps and still get a message saying that some text was not checked, you'll need to perform these same steps in your headers and footers.

  2. Again from the menu, choose Tools->Options, Spelling and Grammar tab. Hit the Recheck Document button, and hit OK

  3. Run spell check again.

- In a blank document in Microsoft Word, select the lone paragraph mark.
- On the Review ribbon, in the Proofing group, click the Set Language button.
- In the dialog, I think you'll find that the "Do not check spelling or grammar" box is checked.
- Uncheck it, and then click the Default button to apply the setting to the Normal template.
- Click Yes in the message that asks whether to change the default, and click OK to close the Language dialog.
