    Partial Document Spell-Check

    Hi,

    In a Word2k document, I want the red squiggles that represent a spelling error to apply to all the text except for the extracts of Code.

    Is that possible? One thing that may help is that I do have a separate Style set for the code.

    Thanks,

    m.q.

    Re: Partial Document Spell-Check

    Do you want the squiggle to apply to all text, correctly spelt or not ?

    Does it have to be red ?

    You can apply underlining and set it to wavy (i.e.squiggles), but I don't think you can select a separate colour for underlining, it is the same colour as the text. Maybe there is a way.

    Regards,

    Andrew C

    Re: Partial Document Spell-Check

    Just to clarify my Q:
    I want Word to check the whole document excluding the parts which have code.
    Is that possible? or does spell checking HAVE TO be for the whole document, start to end?

    Thanks,

    m.q.

    I created a paragraph style called MacroText. It is based on Normal, but the font colour is violet and the language is set to No proofing.

    Try this: (Word97) Format, Styles, MacroText, Modify, Format, Language, and then scroll up to the top of the list.

    Hi musab:

    You can do one of two things:

    1. You can select some text, & then go to Tools/Language/Set Language. In Word 2000, there is no language called no proofing (too bad, I liked that). But you untick the box that says to check for spelling & grammer.

    2. You can create a style, as Chris points out in his post. I think this is the preferable solution, except you uncheck the box for spelling for that style, as opposed to "no proofing". But violet....???[img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    You want I should use alternate red and blue letters and look funny? (grin!)

    Hey. There's a neat macro I'll write tonight. User selects some text, I throw up a GUI colour panel, user selects two or more colours and I colour alternate letters.

    Any buyers?

    Point well taken. I should remember "People who live in glass houses..."[img]/w3timages/icons/blush.gif[/img]
