Default Word SPell check wont work with some fonts

all options are set to suggest as you type but it does nothing. Also will
not
find any errors with "check spelling" or F7...I don't know what to do but am
desperate! Went through the vast maze of support knowledge bases but
nothing...any help would be most appreciated!


I have realized that it won't correct some fonts. That seems to be the
problem, even in publisher...grrrr! Is there any way around this?

Hi ?B?TWFya2ll?=,

I have realized that it won't correct some fonts. That seems to be the
problem, even in publisher...grrrr! Is there any way around this?

Every font has a "tag" that tells programs whether the font is meant to be
used as text, or as symbols. Spell check ignores everything tagged as a
symbol. So you'd have to contact the person who made the font and ask them
to toggle that bit.
