Disable Custom Dictionary in MS Word
When the spell checker is activated in MS Word, text in your document are compared against the main dictionary and any additional "custom dictionaries" you may have created.
Sometimes you may not want MS Word to use the custom dictionary. For instance, let's say that you have developed a rather extensive dictionary that is very specific to your industry or to your company. The dictionary may contain many specialized terms, but using those terms to spell-check a document you are preparing for may be inappropriate.
If you want to limit Word's spell checker so it only uses the main dictionary, simply follow these steps:
- Choose Options from the Tools menu. Word displays the Options dialog box.
- Make sure the Spelling & Grammar tab is selected.
- Make sure the Suggest From Main Dictionary Only check box is selected.
- Click on OK.
