Proofing Tools Do Not Check Text Modified with Revision Marks PSS ID Number: Q102444 Article last modified on 07-14-1994

2.00 2.00a 2.00a-CD 2.00b 2.00c


The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c, 6.0, 6.1


Word for Windows will not proof text that has been modified using Revision Marks in Word for Windows. The proofing tools will check new text that has been added to the document and does not check modified text even if you turn off Revision Marks.


This behavior is by design.


If you type the word “spel” in a document, turn Revision Marks on, select the word and press the DEL key, a line will appear through the word indicating that the word is to be deleted from the document. Therefore, to Word, the text does not exist. If you try to proof the misspelled word, the proofing tools will not proof the text for errors.

This is a function of both Revision Marks and the proofing tools in Word for Windows.
