Go back to the original spelling and grammar check for Word documents.
Please return to the original spelling and grammar check for Word documents. The automatic update now says "Check document," adds the number of spelling and grammar errors, won't check only a highlighted section, and requires separate steps to check spelling and grammar. It is difficult to use and time consuming. The spelling and grammar check that was in Word remains in Outlook for email. Please go back to that method for Word documents. This is a very bad upgrade and makes me question using Office 365.
The new MS Word Editor is a disaster. Please reinstate the ability to SPELLCHECK SELECTED PARTS OF WORD DOCUMENTS instead of the entire document. It's impossible to measure and improve readability of large documents without being able to check only individual sentences and paragraphs. Being able to check spelling and readability of selected sections is helpful to writers and essential to editors like me! After being able to check and edit by sections for decades, removing this feature from MS Word is both puzzling and frustrating. It's such a PITA and timewaster forcing users to copy/paste sections into a second document and edit them there to improve readability, then copy/paste edited text back into the original document. Seriously, there are many comments here complaining about this unproductive change. When are you going to address this problem? Thank you.
Thanks so much
As another user says, it sometimes avoids words that are definitely spelt wrong; and sometimes will keep cycling round to a 'mistake' even though you've clicked 'accept all'.
I seriously cannot understand WHY MS would remove this function in the first place. Now we cannot spell check a "portion" of the document, but have to sit through the entire document check---just to have a specific portion of the document spell checked! This a nightmare for editors! MS--restore the functionality so Word will spell check highlighted portions only! What a waste of time you have caused by removing this valuable function!
Who in their right mind could have ever thought this change would be considered an improvement?
good service windeses
