Description Ed Willoughby 2013-03-12 19:49:57 UTC
There is an icon that is colored blue with the spell check feature. Next to it is an icon that is a spell check with a red squiggly line under the 'ABC'. When I have a regular document and want to spell check it I used to simply click on the 'blue' ABC spell check icon and the program would highlight only the words spelled incorrectly.  Now when I do the same process I get either of two results, all the words are underlined with the red squiggly lines or every word comes up in the window as be spelled incorrectly.
I have no idea what to do about the problem. I am 74-years of age and I am not a computer wizard, nor am I very coumputer literate. I just do do not know what to do next to correct this problem. In addition, I find it very difficult to understand the words that are used in the programing language.
Pleas help.
Thank you so very much for your help.

There are many things that can cause spell checking to not work, but the only known bug that can cause this is 121930, which has a workaround, namely resetting the profile.

Your best bet is to try the user support forums ( for help.
