I deal with a lot of documents that are not straight English and Word believes half the document has Contextual Spelling problems resulting in pages of blue squiggles. I can go into the proofing options and uncheck all the spelling and grammar checkers but if there were squiggles there before they remain till I re-open the document. I’ve even tried a macro:

Options.ContextualSpeller = False

Works the same way. I can turn it off but until I close and re-open the doc the squiggles remain. Is there some way to turn off Contextual Spelling and get rid of the squiggles?
