Hello All,


We have some documents for spell checking. Even after selecting the language from the tool (Review - Language - French / Dutch), we are unable to get the perfect spell check.

Will you provide me any tool or software which can give us better accuracy?

Thanks in advance.

Language packs? Mar 19, 2014

A very basic question: did you install the appropriate language packs?

Language is applied, not selected Mar 21, 2014

Just in case, let me clarify that language is not a user preference, but an attribute of the text, much like boldface, point size or font. Thus, just as if you wanted to set that text in boldface, you first need to select it, then choose the language to apply.
