    Mac Office spell check problems
    When I go through a spell check on my copy of Office for Mac, it works just fine and checks the spellings properly; however, the program will not allow me to add any words to dictionary. I checked for the custom dictionary and it tells me that it is present yet I am still unable to add any words it. Has anyone else had this problem? anyone know a solution?

    I agree, it doesn't sound like an easy problem to fix. I could understand it a bit more if the custom dictionary hadn't loaded or was not included in the original file but I am still able to locate it on the computer. Any help that anyone has or any other avenues that might provide some answers would be greatly appreciated.

    Possible solution to the custom dictionary not allowing you to add new words
    I resolved this by adding a new custom dictionary saved as with the file name custom dictionary-2.
    To do this:
    1. select the 'Word" menu item "preferences"
    2. Select "Spelling and Grammar" in the edit options pane
    3. Select the "dictionaries" button and then "Add" in the new window.
    4. Give your dictionary a new name.
    5. Make sure it is selected as well as your previous custom dictionary and save the changes.

    You should now be able to see "Add" in the right click menu or spell check window
