Microsoft Word 2010 (Professional) is not spell checking some paragraphs for some reason but I would like it to do so.
If I crtl a > under review tab, language, set proofing language dialogue box > the do not check spelling or grammar checkbox is 'squared out'. However if I clear this setting so its blank (neither a square nor a tick) it reverts to the squared out setting again, if I reopen the dialogue box. I've tried set as default and the language dictionary (UK eng) is installed)
I have checked the setting under the home tab > options > proofing and there's nothing wrong there as far as I'm aware (i.e. first four of the checkbox settings are ticked, under 'when correcting spelling and grammar in word')
If select don't do select all but only select a few paragraphs then the 'set proofing language dialogue box' retains my settings, and word spellchecks those few paragraphs correctly.
If its of any relevance, I'm using some different quick styles (headings and main body text) as its a fairly big document (~ 30 pages). I checked the stlye used for main body paragraphs and 'do not check spelling or grammar checkbox' is unchecked.
Is there something really obvious I'm missing here? I'd really appreciate some help - thanks!
