setting spelling and grammar options
The Proofing page of the Word Options dialog box is where you
can change the behavior of the spelling checker and the gram-
mar checker. You can decide whether you want Word to notify
you with red and blue squiggles whenever it detects a problem
or whether you prefer to run a manual check at your conve-
nience. You can determine which rules the grammar checker will
apply, and you can add or remove custom dictionaries.
The Proofing page also contains the AutoCorrect Options
button, which opens a separate dialog box. For a description of
the AutoCorrect and AutoFormat options, see “Set AutoCorrect
options” on page 73 and “Setting AutoFormat options” starting
on page 76.
