    Is there a problem with Mac Word 2011's Spell Check?

    I just thought I'd give my 110 page Master thesis a final review, only realize that the Spell Check on my Mac Word 2011 does NOT WORK! It's not even an option under tools and I think I tried every options except for re-copying the entire document into a new file, which I so don't wanna do because of the formatting and graphs. Is there anything I can try in order to get spell check added?

    I know virtually nothing about Mac computers. However, the spell check is usually a function of the word processing software you are using. For instance if you are using Microsoft Office for Mac software, then the spell check would be within the software and not the operating system.

    If you cannot find a spell check box that has not been checked, I can recommend the following. Save the document to an external source, but to DVD, flash drive, portable drive, etc.

    You can then run it on another computer that has spell check, mark up the misspelled words and then go back to your original copy, make the necessary changes and save it. 

    Check the website for whatever word processing program you are using for more information.

    Good luck. I feel your pain.
