Correcting Your Spelling Errors
If the word in question isn’t a misspelling, tell your program how to handle
the word by clicking one of these buttons:
✦ Ignore: Ignores this instance of the misspelling but stops on it again if
the same misspelling appears later.
✦ Ignore All: Ignores the misspelling throughout the document you’re
working on and in all other open documents as well.
✦ Change/Delete: Enters the selected word in the document where the
misspelling used to be. When the same word appears twice in a row,
the Delete button appears. Click the Delete button to delete the second
word in the pair.
✦ Change All: Replaces all instances of the misspelled word with the word
that you select. Click the Change All button to correct a misspelling that
occurs throughout a document.
✦ Add: Adds the misspelling to the Office spelling dictionary. By clicking
the Add button, you tell Word that the misspelling is a legitimate word
