Microsoft Word 2013 - Proofing Language

Hi,

i am trying to use the spell checker with word 2013 and when i click on Review => Languagues=> and Set proofing language => i got a dialogue box (see screenshot attached) where is says-" Do not check spelling or grammar" . The problem is it doesn't matter how many time i unselect this little tick box it keeps coming back with a ticking on it. i try to select the English language as default but it doesn't work.

Can you please help.

This action only applies to the current Selection, so as soon as you move off that selection or change the document, the setting will revert to the default value.

Note that the setting is saved with the document, so that the next time you open the saved document, the same range(s) that you selected will still be set to your choice.

Also, you can set different areas to different languages in the same way.

I'm not so familiar with Outlook, so we would both be starting from the same place.
If it important and you can't find another way, I suggest composing in Word and then copying to the Outlook message.
