    Although Word (2004 vrsn 11.2) will spell check in some areas of my documents, it generally refuses to spell check in other portions.

    I used to go to tools and pull down to language - I always had to reset to US english and then it would spell check - now I notice I don't have the language option under tools.

    Does anyone know how to get Word to just spell check everywhere in a document ?

    word spell check

    I found the answers to my spell check problems at

    http://word.mvps.org/mac/SpellCheck.html#NoToolsLanguage

    it explains the weird mysteries of getting Word to check all parts of documents.

    as an aside, how oh how did word ever become the leading text software - it seems to have been designed by a committee.
