    Spell Check (Word XP)

    When in Word XP.... If I am in Print View and I do a spell check it switches it to normal view and sometimes I get a message telling me that in order to spell check the whole doc it will need to switch it to normal view.... Any ideas, its not a big deal but it is annoying.

    I haven't seen this myself, but if it's any consolation, you're not alone. Your problem is mentioned once in the newsgroups, unfortunately without any replies.

    I thought Word preferred to be in Print Layout view, so this behavior doesn't sound like the default. I wonder if this could be related to an add-in?

    I don't get this either. I would follow on from Jefferson's suggestion and disable your templates and add-ins and see whether that has any effect. Do you know how to do that?

    yes I will try disabling my templates and go from there. Thanks for your input. As I said I have never seen this happen until a few days ago so it is for sure strange.

    Do you recall where the other post was or what post number it was. I have tried disabling the add ins and to no avail. The other weird thing is it happens on two systems and not on the others. All addins are the same and all settings are the same.

    I didn't refer to a Lounge post, but to Spell Check - changes Page views in the MS Newsgroups, found when I was looking for Word 2002 (XP) specifically. Removing the 2002 restriction turns up many more results, but not all are relevant by far. The common denominator seems to be that if search continues into the headers and footers, Word tends to switch to Normal view.
