Do you use a lot of uppercase acronyms in your MS Office files?
Wish the spellcheck feature would skip over them and stop bugging you?
No problem! You just need to let your feeling be known.
I actually have a couple of suggestions for you today.
First, assuming that it’s an acronym that you use frequently you could choose to add it to your custom dictionary. Simply right-click on the acronym and choose Add to Dictionary from the list.
Now, if your acronyms frequently vary and adding them one at a time seems a bit inefficient then maybe we should consider changing the way the program behaves.
In older Office programs you need the Tools menu, Options choice. (Yep, this is a setting that can be different in each program, so repeat as necessary with the different programs you use).
Now, you need to locate the tab that has to do with Spelling.
Next, check the “Ignore words in UPPERCASE” option and click OK.
In Office 2007 you need to start at the Office Button, then click the program’s Option button in the bottom right side of the menu.
You are looking for the Proofing category of options.
As with other versions, check the “Ignore words in UPPERCASE” option and click OK.
With this option checked, you will find that the program leaves your acronyms alone. Yes!
