I’ve just been over on the Tech Republic website, where I read about this completely convoluted way of omitting text from spellcheck for selected parts of the document (for anyone that is interested in mucking around changing attributes of styles, here is the link so you can torture yourself over at TechRepublic).
I would just do it this way for Word 2007 & 2010
- Select the text
- Click the Review tab
- Click the Set Languages button over on the left of the ribbon.
- In the dialogue box that opens, check the box for ‘Do not check spelling or grammar’, and then click OK.
That’s it – now when you run a spellcheck, this area is omitted (a good idea when using technical terms or jargon that spellcheck will not automatically recognise).
