Windows annoyances

Setting the default dictionary in Word 2007

2010.10.26: From some reason Word decided that this specific document is written in Spanish (it is not) instead in the plain US English. Consequently it tagged many words as misspelled. One can go through the document and correct the dictionary chosen for each tagged word, or use our friend Google to find the solution. Two comments attached to the posting [1] were useful. In essence, while editing the problematic document, go to the “REVIEW” tab, choose the “SET LANGUAGE” button, and there set the “MARK THE SELECTED TEXT AS:” to the desired language. While you are there, you may want to uncheck the “DETECT LANGUAGE AUTOMATICALLY” check field.

What a drag. Half an hour of lost time.
