Office 2003: spelling & grammer. problem

  ianeon 19:54 03 Jul 09

Good morning - I use Microsoft Office 2003 - When I "spell-check" a document it does it in English(U.S.) - when I change it to English(U.K.) it reverts back to English(U.S.) the next time I use it. Is there a way of keeping the Spell-Check permanently on English(U.K) - Thank you - Ian

You don't need to delete English (US)
just change the default in the bottom box to English UK.

Lotvic - That's my problem - when I do that it automatically reverts back to English(U.S.) the next time I start my computer.

I think that any documents you have in Word that have used the US setting will open the next time with that setting. You will have to change it to UK and save the doc for the change to become permanent. The default setting is only for new docs.

wiz-king has said it :) You will have to Select All the text that is in US to change it to UK in the docs you have

check the default for new docs by opening Word so it shows a blank new document and have a look at the bottom bar - about in the middle it should tell you the default language for the normal template (or if you open a Document the default language for the Document)
Double click on the language it shows and a popup language box will open for you to change the normal template.
Choose English (UK) in the top bit and click on 'Default' and a new pop up will ask if you want to change the normal template.

Same popup boxes can be accessed through Tools > Language in the top bar
Remember to click on OK to keep the changes.
