2018-02-26A macro to fix document templates in which Word won't check spelling


Tags All Tech Personal

Language and "Do not check spelling or grammar" are style formatting in Word, not per-document settings. This wouldn't be a big issue if it was simple to select everything in a document and set both of the style properties, but Ctrl+A doesn't always work and if you're googling this you know damn well it doesn't.

The links below explain the problem and give the kernel of a solution, although I found it useful to explicitly set the language and (more of an issue) found that errors would prevent looping through some of the styles unless forcibly ignored.
