Word 2010 proofing tools are changing misspelled words how they want. For example I wanted to write the word Like, but I typed Leke and Word 2010 changed this to Lake without any warning.

Is there any option to just underline misspelled words so I can correct them how I want?

I am talking about proofing tools for non-English language.

disable auto correction – Sb Sangpi May 6 '12 at 9:35
yes, but that will disable all corrections – Shark4Ever May 6 '12 at 10:11
@shark4Ever just to be clear, it will disable the computer correcting things for you... it will not disable the computer from showing you where YOU need to make a correction. If you want the computer to read your mind to know that you meant Like instead of Lake, when you typed Leke... that's something else entirely. – Bon Gart May 6 '12 at 14:56
@Shark4Ever You have confused disabling auto correction with disabling the dictionary altogether. – SnookerFan May 10 '12 at 12:54

You can edit or remove individual AutoCorrect entries.

If you want to just underline misspelled words and not use AutoCorrect, you can disable it as Sb Sangpi said in a comment earlier.
