I don't know if the dictionary isn't working, or there is a glitch. All of the words on my text and spreadsheet pages are underlined as if they are spelled wrong. I have been in the community section and find no help there, as I am technically illiterate when it comes to electronics. What they are saying to do is hard for me to follow. Please help.
