Word - Errors are not being detected

October 2016

Unless you specify it not to do so, Word will check all the words you type and highlights the spelling errors with a wavy red line and grammar errors by a blue or green line. It should be noted that this feature is related to the default language settings used under Word ..(the default language is displayed the status bar of Word).

Errors are not underlined

In the case that Word is not detecting errors:
  • The option has been disabled.
  • Word is not detecting properly the language being used.

Click the language displayed in the status bar to open the Language dialog box.
  • Uncheck "Do not check spelling or grammar"
  • Check "Detect language automatically

Click on OK to validate
