I have an issue with Word 2004's spell check function not working on files created on the Window's platform, when I try to edit them. If I copy parts of the file to a new file created on my Mac (Powermac G5 2.0GHz Leopard latest updates) the spell checker works, but not if I copy all the text at once (command a). I have seen this issue before with files with huge graphics attached, but in this case the files are only 32k or 48k, or smaller. It seems to be related to the formatting in the file as the spell checker works when I only copy the text, but not when I copy the text with formatting. I have checked the preferences under the file menu and spell checking is on. What gives here and does anybody know how to fix this issue? Much appreciated if someone does know.
