Proofing Your Document
At times, you might prefer to check your spelling and grammar all at once instead of
rightclicking every instance of a potential error. In those cases, you can use the Spelling And
Grammar dialog box (Figure 10-4) to work through your document or a block of selected
text. To access the Spelling And Grammar dialog box, on the Review tab, click Spelling &
Grammar or press F7.
Figure 10-4 You can click Spelling & Grammar on the Review tab to open the Spelling And
Grammar dialog box.
You can click in the upper portion of the Spelling And Grammar dialog box and make
editing changes. This dialog box is also modeless, which means you can leave the dialog box
open, click in the document, make modifications, and then resume the proofing check.
Tip
To check only a portion of your document, select the desired text and then click the
Spelling & Grammar button on the Review tab to display the Spelling And Grammar
dialog box. When the end of the selected text is reached, Word displays a message
stating that it has finished checking the selected text and asking whether you’d like to
continue checking the remainder of the document.
INSIDE OUT
Activating the Grammar Checker
You can control whether the grammar checker is activated by selecting or clearing the
Check Grammar check box in the Spelling And Grammar dialog box, but to access this
particular check box only, click Spelling & Grammar on the Review tab or press F7. If
you display the Spelling dialog box or the Grammar dialog box by right-clicking an
underlined potential error, the Check Grammar check box will not be available.
