Why did the Spelling and
Grammar Check icon appear on the
status bar?
When you begin typing text, the
Spelling and Grammar Check icon
appears on the status bar with an
animated pencil writing on paper
that indicates Word is checking for
spelling and grammar errors. When
you stop typing, the pencil changes
to a blue check mark (no errors) or
a red X (potential errors found).
Word fl ags potential errors in the
document with a red or green wavy
underline. Later, this chapter shows
how to fi x fl agged errors.
