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.

Hi, I recently decided to click "ignore" on one of the words flagged by the spell checker, after this it has decided to ignore every single mis-spelt word on any hub, is there any way to turn it back on?

My question or comment relates to the current spell check capability of the text module. It seems to me that the spell check is not catching some of miss spellings. In my own experience, a miss spelled word is not highlighted "underline in red" all the time. It only shows up at certain...

I was looking over someone's profile page the other day and noticed a misspelled word in one of their summaries. It was clear what the author was trying to say so I just moved on to another hub, happily oblivious. Then today, I was writing a new hub and got to the summary part and worried that I...

The spellcheck has never worked for me on hubpages. I click it and it either tells me a bunch of words are misspelled when they aren't or it shows no misspellings, when I know there are. I end up copying and pasting my articles to word and doing a check there and having to go back and...
