    spellcheck (word 2007)

    I have a large document - 104,000 words (it's a novel actually - one that's actually going to be published)
    somehow in some parts of it the default language is English (Australia) (my preference) but other parts are English (US) eg if I scroll down page 340 for example it changes from English (Australia) to English (US)

    my question is how do I make the whole thing English (Australia)?

    i have tried copying it and pasting it to a new template (which has English (Australia)) but it still seems to retain these parts that are English (US)

    thanks, Phil

    This often happens to me if I'm copying and pasting text from other documents.

    The simplest fix is to select the whole document (Ctrl-A) then go to the Review tab and select "Set Language" - click on 'English - Australia', save the document and you're done.

    I've never worked with such a large document as yours but I can't see why the above shouldn't work.

    worked a treat - thanks
    the set language icon is a bit anonymous looking, though - took me a while to find it
