    I know this question might be better directed elsewhere, but since it occurred only after using the migration assistant to transfer Microsoft Office 2004 between my PowerBook and my MBP, I thought I might shoot (besides, I am not a member of any Microsoft forums and am lost in a sea of "Was this useful?" questions on the company site).

    Basically, since I migrated, when a word is indicated as spelled incorrectly or not recognized, i.e. red underline, I cannot "Add" when I "right-click." That is, I cannot add to the dictionary that is used for spell check. Anyone aware of a function that will allow me to enable this, and why it would have turned off after a migration (the second point being of minimal importance). :rolleyes:

    Migration Assistant is pretty buggy. I'd only ever use it for basic data files such as MP3s, documents, videos and pictures. Reinstall the apps from whence they came (CDs or disk images form the 'net or wherever) to save yourself some hassle further down the track. :)
