Millions of users work daily Word to edit documents. Not for nothing are we facing the most used Microsoft suite tool in the world .
One of the most used resources within the tool is the famous spelling and grammar checker, which in most cases can be very useful. But let's face it, sometimes it can become a real nuisance . The excessive use of anglicisms, neologisms or certain proper names in a document can become an indent of red underlines, which are a great annoyance. And sometimes automatic corrections can lead us down the path of bitterness, as for example when trying to write articles about Acer (an h is always automatically added in front of it).
Therefore, today we are going to show you how to prevent Word from checking the grammar and spelling of a specific document . Let's go there.
Disable single document review
Let's imagine that we have several Word documents open, and one of them abounds with a series of words that the automatic checker may consider as wrong. Which, as we mentioned above, the only thing that manages to distract us while we are writing.
Now, that does not mean that we do not want the correction functions to continue to be applied in the rest of the open documents. So how the hell do I go about disabling text checking for a single document ?
Very easy, for this we must go to the ' File'> 'Word Options' tab . A pop-up window will appear in which we will have to select the ' Review' option . This is precisely where the heart of the matter lies.
If we look closely, at the end of this section we find a drop-down menu next to the ' Exceptions for' indication . We simply have to select the document where we want the spelling and grammar correction not to be applied , and activate the boxes for 'Hide spelling errors only in this document' and 'Hide grammar errors only in this document'.
As we can see, this very useful option is a bit hidden, but it can certainly be of great help at certain times. Now it only remains for you to try this solution for yourself and tell us what you think.
