So I have been playing around in word, and some how turned on this feature, but can't figure out how to turn it off.

I get a blue squiqqle line under alot of words, and even blank lines.  It looks similar to spell check but is blue.

I am sure it is a simple feature I need to uncheck but can't find it.

Thanks.

Is it definitely blue - not green?  I don't recall seeing a blue line in Word - what version are you using?
What is it underlining specifically?  Not the word(s) necessarily, but in what instances?

Hi GDoucette,
I think you mean the grammar checker, which will pick up too many spaces between sentences among other things. You can turn it off using the Tools...Options...Spelling and Grammar menu item--just uncheck the "Check grammar as you type" option.

Cheers!

Yes I am sure its blue.

And I tried the grammer checker.  

Right now I have it in Outlook and Word (word is my email editor).

So for example when  I reply to an email in outlook the first line where I would start typing has a blue squiqqle.

In word say I want to create some labels, and I bring up a label template, there is a blue squiqqle in each one where I would begin typing.

I have also opened a new email and my entire signature was underlined in blue squiqqle.

Try Tools/Autocorrect Options / Smart Tags
and remove the "label text with smart tags" and click OK and see if that changes it...

Agj,

Good point, I should have thought of that.

When I right click it says:

Make this text consistent with formatting Normal (Web) Arial 10+

So, I guess there is some formatting command?
