    Spell Checking question (2003 SP-1)

    When I run the Spell Checker and notice some other thing I want to correct in the body of the document, e.g., remove a double space, etc., I cannot do this while the spell check dialog box is open. When I was using Word 2000 SP-3 I could do this, e.g., make some changes in the body of the document while the spell check dialog was open, click "Resume" and continue spell checking. Is this option no longer available in Word 2003? Having to close the spell checker, make whatever changes I want in the document and then start the spell checker again is really a pain.

    I can't answer your question about Word 2003, but I notice in Word 2002 that when I click out of the Spelling and Grammar dialog, the top button changes to Resume. I agree that this is a handy feature. (But I rely on the squiggly red underlines, so I had never noticed before.) Is there a Spelling "task pane" in Word 2003 that might provide the flexibility available in earlier versions??

    Man, you are asking the wrong person! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15> I am brand new to Word 2003 and that's why my question. The issue for me is that I can't click out of the Spelling and Grammar dialog; i.e., you are locked in to the spelling & grammar function. To click in the document, I have to close out the Spelling & Grammar box, do whatever I need/want to do and then restart the Spell checker again. I clicked on the "Options" in the dialog box and there doesn't appear to be anything relevant to the issue.

    I just tried this (using Word 2003 SP1) and it worked in the same way as it always has...

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Pilgrim on 28-Nov-04 11:04. Cause of the problem found.)</P>Gee, I'm happy for you that it works for you. But it doesn't for me. <IMG SRC=http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/sad02.gif>

    I found the problem!! <img src=/S/joy.gif border=0 alt=joy width=23 height=23> The problem is caused due to a conflict with the WordToys addon. What I did was to remove the "WordToys.dot" from the Word startup folder, open Word and ran the SpellChecker. I was able to click in the document, etc. Adding the "WordToys.dot" back in and repeating the process, I was unable to click in the document. I've sent a "bug report" to the author.

    Sorry Jeff, My post wasn't intended as a wind up, but as a reassurance that the functionality was still present in this version of Word - so we needed to look for something in your environment. Glad you found it.
