Sometimes I just don’t get Microsoft Word.
It decided, for some reason, that several paragraphs were misspelled.
The entire paragraphs.
Words like “the” were, at least according to Word, misspelled in those two paragraphs.
Everything was underlined in red.
I decided to run a spellcheck on the entire document. Perhaps, I thought, this would kick Word out of its funk.
Instead, things that Word had decided previously were spelled correctly came up as being misspelled. When, in fact, they weren’t.
I love it, but sometimes it will drive one to distraction.
It could be that my custom dictionary has become too large.
It is massive. Over 2,000 entries. Including “Chrismahannukwanzukah.”
But I don’t know why that would cause Word to go all weird on words like “ant” or “the.”
