How can I disable the spell checking in Word 2016 for one single document only and not for all the others I'll open afterwards?


All Word paragraph styles inherits from the Normal style. If you edit the Normal style to tell him not to check grammar and spell mistakes, it will affect every styles and so, the whole document.

To do so, go to the edit menu of the Normal paragraph style, then format>language and check the "don't check" box.
