How to stop microsoft word from underlining contractions as errors

Microsoft Word tends to underline words that aren’t even errors. Here’s how to stop that from happening.

Judging by the number of typos you can find in formal documents, not enough people pay attention to Microsoft Word’s spellchecker. Perhaps it’s because the tool tends to underline words that aren’t even errors. For example, it’ll mark some contractions as typos, such as I’m, weren’t, haven’t, etc.

The same thing applies to personal words. If Word doesn’t recognize the name of your hometown or the name of your favorite sportsperson, the app will flag it up as a mistake. Luckily, it’s all easy to rectify. Let’s take a closer look.

How to Stop Word Highlighting Contractions as Errors

Stopping Word from highlighting contracted words as mistakes is easy. You can follow the step-by-step instructions below.

  1. Open Microsoft Word.
  2. Click on File in the ribbon.
  3. Select Options from the left-hand panel.
  4. Click on Proofing in the side-bar.
  5. Scroll down to the section titled When correcting spelling and grammar in Word.
  6. Click on Settings.
  7. Scroll down to Formal Language.
  8. Unmark the checkbox next to Contractions.
  9. Click OK.

How to Add Your Own Words to Microsoft Word

There are several ways to add your own words to the app’s dictionary. The most common is to simply type the word in Word, right-click on it, and choose Add to dictionary from the context menu.

Alternatively, you can also click the Add to dictionary button when spellchecking the entire document.

This article describes a new feature in Microsoft Word called the Format Consistency Checker. The article tells you how to turn the Format Consistency Checker on and off, and describes the rules by which the Format Consistency Checker evaluates formatting.

Wavy blue lines that appear under text in a Word document indicate that the Format Consistency Checker is turned on and is functioning in the background as you type. The lines indicate that the Format Consistency Checker has detected an inconsistency that you may want to look at and to correct.

More Information

The Format Consistency Checker allows you to check for and correct most common formatting problems. While you type, the Format Consistency Checker can make automatic changes to the document format with the AutoFormat command. It can check and mark possible format inconsistencies in the background as you type.

In Microsoft Office Word 2003 or in Microsoft Word 2002 you can also run the Format Consistency Checker by clicking Spelling and Grammar on the Tools menu.

In Microsoft Office Word 2007, you can run the Format Consistency Checker by clicking Spelling & Grammar in the
Proofing group on the Review tab.

Rules that the Format Consistency Checker uses

The Format Consistency Checker can check for unintentional inconsistencies in text and paragraph formatting, according to specific formatting rules. The rules that the Format Consistency Checker uses to identify a possibly unintentional format are as follows.

Rule 1: Consolidate similar direct formatting schemes

This rule identifies different formatting schemes that are very similar to each other. The Format Consistency Checker scans a document looking for similar formatting schemes. If the Format Consistency Checker finds at least two instances of a scheme that are identical, it offers you the opportunity to make all similar formatting schemes identical to the format scheme that occurs most frequently. The criteria that Word uses to search for similar schemes are as follows:

The font size variance must be 10% or less.

The font color red, green, and blue mixture must be the same except for the last digit of a custom color.

The Format Consistency Checker checks for any difference in font kerning.

Indentation differences must be less than or equal to .249 inches.

Paragraph spacing (before or after) must be less than or equal to 2.95 points.

Rule 2: Consolidate similar list formatting

This rule identifies inconsistent formatting schemes within a list. The criteria that the Format Consistency Checker uses to search for inconsistencies is:

The Format Consistency Checker checks for any change in font property.

Indentation differences must be less than or equal to .249 inches.

Rule 3: Match Format to an Existing Style

This rule identifies direct formatting that is very similar to a style already in use. The criteria that the Format Consistency Checker uses to search for matching styles is identical to the criteria in rule 1.

How to use the Format Consistency Checker in the background

To use the Format Consistency Checker in the background as you type, follow these steps, as appropriate for the version of Word that you are running.

Word 2003 or Word 2002

On the Tools menu, click Options.

Click the Edit tab.

Under Editing options, click to select the
Mark formatting inconsistencies check box, and then click OK.

Word 2007

In Word 2007, click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Word Options.

In the left pane, click Advanced.

In the right pane, click to select the Mark formatting inconsistencies check box under Editing options, and then click OK.

Note To turn the Format Consistency Checker off, repeat steps 1 and 2, and then click to clear the Mark formatting inconsistencies check box.

When Margaretrose uses a contraction in her writing, Word adds a squiggly underline to the contracted word. When she right-clicks the word, Word indicates that the contraction should be spelled out instead of contracted. Margaretrose wonders how she can correct this so that her contractions—which she prefers—are not flagged as incorrect.

There are, in general, two types of checking that Word does as you are typing your document—spelling and grammar. Sometimes it is easy to confuse the two types of checking, but they are distinct and different in Word. This is evidenced by the fact that you can turn off (or on) checking for both spelling and grammar independent of the other.

The checking that is producing the offending squiggly underlines in Margaretrose’s case is grammar checking. The giveaway to this fact is that when she right-clicks the underlined word, she sees a suggestion to spell out the word instead of using a contraction. This is a suggestion of the grammar checker, not a spelling checker. Many people suggested, in Margaretrose’s case, to add the contracted word to the dictionary. However, adding it to the dictionary won’t help if the fault is with the grammar checker.

Truth be told, grammar checking in Word actually includes two checks: grammar and style. It is the style rules, in Margaretrose’s case, that are causing the problem.

There are a few ways you can approach a problem such as Margaretrose’s. The first approach is to turn off the grammar rule that deals with contractions, in this manner:

  1. Display the Word Options dialog box. (In Word 2007 click the Office button and then click Word Options. In Word 2010 and later versions, display the File tab of the ribbon and then click Options.)
  2. Click Proofing at the left side of the screen.
  3. Click the Settings button. Word displays the Grammar Settings dialog box. (See Figure 1.)

Figure 1. The Grammar Settings dialog box.

At this point, any contractions in your document should not be marked with a squiggly underline because Word is no longer applying the style rule you unselected in step 6. If you want Word to not apply any style rules (you probably noted there were a good number of them), all you need to do is turn off style checking. You do it by following these steps:

  1. Display the Word Options dialog box. (In Word 2007 click the Office button and then click Word Options. In Word 2010 and later versions, display the File tab of the ribbon and then click Options.)
  2. Click Proofing at the left side of the screen. (See Figure 2.)

Marie notes that the grammar check tool in Word is frequently wrong. When it underlines a word or phrase in blue, she can click on “Ignore” or “Ignore All” and the blue goes away. However, when she reopens the document, the blue squiggly underlines are back. This is embarrassing, as her clients get that same blue underline and think she’s made an error when she hasn’t. Marie wonders how she can keep the blue ink away while maintaining the grammar check feature.

At least a partial answer to this question has been covered in a different WordTip. (See the tip entitled Getting Rid of Blue Squiggly Underlines. I note this as a partial answer only, because Ivan (in that tip) wanted to get rid of the blue underlines only on his own system, whereas Marie seems more concerned with getting rid of them on her clients’ systems. In other words, she wants a document she has worked on (and on which she has resolved blue underlines by clicking “Ignore” or “Ignore All”) to not show those blue underlines when her clients open the same document.

This, unfortunately, cannot be done. Why? Because when you are clicking “Ignore” or “Ignore All” on your system, you are telling the grammar checker what to do only on your system. When the document is opened on a different system (like, perhaps, your client’s system), it is his or her grammar checker that adds the blue underlines. Word does not store the “Ignore” or “Ignore All” determinations with the document itself.

There is another thing to keep in mind here: Word bases those blue underlines on a series of settings that are configurable within each installation of Word. You can see those rules by following these three steps:

  1. Display the Word Options dialog box. (In Word 2007 click the Office button and then click Word Options. In Word 2010 or a later version, display the File tab of the ribbon and then click Options.)
  2. Click Proofing at the left side of the dialog box.
  3. Near the bottom of the dialog box, click the Settings button. Word displays the Grammar Settings dialog box. (See Figure 1.)

How to stop microsoft word from underlining contractions as errors

Figure 1. The Grammar Settings dialog box.

All of these “rule settings” can be changed on a system-by-system basis. Thus, you could have different rule settings than are used on your clients’ systems, which means that on their systems grammar will be checked (and marked with blue underlines) differently than on your system.

Of course, one potential solution is to reword your prose to satisfy Word’s grammar checker, which will remove the blue underline. This is probably not a satisfactory approach, though, because (1) Word can be wrong in its marking, as Marie notes, and (2) different rule settings may cause blue underlines to appear on the client systems even though they don’t appear on yours.

A more permanent solution would be to add a macro to the document to turn off grammar checking when the document is loaded and turn it back on when it is closed. A better solution, though, might be to simply generate a PDF from your document and let the clients work with the PDF rather than the actual Word document.

Word can be a little unruly sometimes, making inexplicable changes, inserting text you didn’t ask for, and hijacking your formatting. Here are some common stunts that Word tries to pull on unwary users, along with a cure for each one.

What’s hot at TechRepublic

One of the most common complaints about Microsoft Word is its insistence on taking control of the wheel. Many users get completely blindsided by some of Word’s automatic changes, and even the more experienced among them often just live with Word’s shenanigans because because they don’t know how to disable them.

If you’ve gotten more than your share of support calls from users trying to wrestle Word into submission (or pulled out your own hair on a few occasions), the list below will help you quickly cut Word down to size.

A few things to keep in mind: First, many of the options you need are located in the AutoFormat As You Type tab. A similar set of options exists in the AutoFormat tab — but disabling those won’t do you any good with Word’s on-the-fly changes. Users sometimes don’t make that distinction and can’t understand why the changes are still happening after they thought they’d turned off the necessary settings.

Second, some of these options may actually sound appealing to your users but might currently be disabled. You can use this list to help them selectively activate the features they want, not just to turn things off. It’s not always the features themselves that are annoying — it’s just not knowing how to control them.

And finally, Word 2007 offers the same feature set described here, but accessing the options is a little different. The section at the bottom explains how to find them in that version.

This information is also available as a PDF download.

Cheap solution: Undo

If you haven’t had a chance to disable an automatic feature (or you want to leave it enabled and override it only occasionally), remember that pressing Ctrl+Z or clicking the Undo button right after Word makes a change will undo that action. So, for instance, if Word inserts a smart apostrophe where you want to retain the straight character to denote measurement, just hit Undo to straighten it back out.

The annoyances

  • Correct Two Initial Capitals
  • Capitalize First Letter Of Sentences
  • Capitalize First Letter Of Table Cells
  • Capitalize Names Of Days
  • Correct Accidental Use Of Caps Lock Key

Bonus fixes

Word may cause your users some additional grief in various other ways besides automatic behaviors. It goes a little something like this:

User: My document if full of weird code stuff and my pictures are gone. Culprit: Field code display has been toggled on. Solution: Suggest that the user press Alt+F9 to restore the display of field code results. User: I’m seeing gray brackets around a bunch of my text. Culprit: Bookmark display has been enabled. Solution: Go to Tools | Options and select the View tab. Then, under the Show options, deselect the Bookmarks check box and click OK. User: I’m typing and everything in front of the cursor is disappearing. Culprit: The evil Overtype mode has been activated. Solution: Go to Tools | Options and select the Edit tab. Then, under Editing Options, deselect the Overtype Mode check box and click OK. (It might be quicker to double-click OVR on the status bar, if you can point the user to it.) User: Everything’s gone, all my toolbars and menus and everything — there’s nothing here but text. Culprit: The user has landed in Full Screen view. Solution: Direct the user’s attention to the Close Full Screen View button at the bottom of the window (depending on the version) or tell them to press Alt+V to display the View menu. They can then select Full Screen to turn off that view mode and return to familiar territory.

Accessing the options in Word 2007

All the settings we’ve discussed here are accessible via the Office button in Word 2007:

  • To get to the AutoCorrect dialog box, click the Office button, select Word Options at the bottom of the menu, and choose Proofing from the pane on the left. In the pane on the right, click the AutoCorrect Options button, and Word will display the AutoCorrect dialog box containing the AutoCorrect and AutoFormat As You Type tabs.
  • To get to editing options, click the Office button, select Word Options at the bottom of the menu, and choose Advanced from the pane on the left. Word will display Editing Options at the top of the pane on the right. In that section, you’ll find the When Selecting, Automatically Select Entire Word check box and the Use Overtype Mode option. If you scroll down to the Show Document Content section, you’ll find the Show Bookmarks check box.
  • The successor to Full Screen view in Word 2007 is Full Screen Reading view. Users shouldn’t get stuck there, but if they do, the Close button in the upper-right corner of the window will take them back to Print Layout view.
