Copy and paste your text to a new document without the original formatting. This really sucks and can be time consuming to reformat  but it is what I do as a last resort. Save it with a different name. You could do a google search asking this question and maybe get some bettet advice.

Do you need to do the check as you go, or can you not do it all at the end as you revise and edit?

Personally I hate having it on all the time as I grew up in Canada and the US so often mix words ending in re/er while I type.  I also find the constant reminder that I have typed soemthing wrong distracting if I am trying to get a document done in a certain time frame.

Coffee girl sometimes thetr is a glitch  in word that prevents spellchecking while you are typing and when you ask it to occur.

If you're in Word 2007, go to the office button (top left hand side), click on Word Options, then Proofing. Check that the boxes at the bottom are unticked (hide spelling/grammar in this document).

Is there any chance of applying for special consideration and getting an extension due to the fact you had to evacuate?

Do you mean notes from the original document or hard copy?

Glad to help...if only a little.   original.gif
