Office Products should have an "Ignore All Spelling in Document."


S

Serpenyx

Many times I have found myself wanting to Ignore All spelling in the
document. I want to do this for all words in the file. I can't seem to find
an option to do so in any office product. I have to say that spellchecker is
an excellent tool but there are certain times where it poses a readability
problem (red and green squigglies everywhere!). I then find myself running
through the spellcheck wizard hitting ignore on every single detected error,
which is a huge waste of time. The times I would look to use this would be
instances where I am pasting a piece of example code in C# or Java, or really
whatever I fancy, in Word or especially OneNote. I am sure there are other
circumstances that would require the option of ignoring all spelling errors
as well. Though, if this is implemented somewhere already (I couldn't find
it) I guess this can just be ignored itself.

I believe spell-check in an individual application option.
For instance, In Word 2002, under Tools | Options | Spelling & Grammar (tab) ...
there is a "Check Spelling as You Type" option button.

If you have an Office version with the Ribbon, try clicking the big round button and look under options.
(the only 2007 app, I have is excel)
