To perform a spelling and grammar check:
- Choose Tools → Spelling and Grammar.
- Word will, by default, check grammar as well as spelling. To skip the grammar check, deselect the Check grammar option in the Spelling and Grammar dialog box.
- The check will only look at items that are still flagged with a red- or green-wavy underline. So if you have been staying on top of these indicators as they appeared in your document, your manual spelling and grammar check will be a very short process.
