Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When spell check puts the red underline to show a spelling mistake, right-click and choose “Add to Dictionary”. Then the Spell Check feature knows to ignore the specific words. If they are actually getting auto-corrected (rather than just tagged as spelling errors) then you will need to add them into Auto Correct. Depending on the version of word you are using – it will be the Office button or File tab that you choose, click on Word Options –> Proofing and there sits your Auto Correct Options. Under the AutoCorrect tab, click on Exceptions and add in anything you don’t want corrected.

    Did you mean that some have not been created using Spell Check - or do you mean that they don't need it - so you would like to turn it off?
