Formatting code in word

Probably not what you want to hear, but I never distribute documents in Word as I then have no control on the formatting. The receiver might not have the same font installed and then the text might reflow and all kinds of bad things might happen! :)

I always use PDF for distrution. BUT, if you still want to use Word you can create a specific format for the code blocks and then select the language for that format and check the “Do not check spelling or grammar” for that format. You can also select the newly pasted text and then do the same procedure (Select language and check the do not check checkbox).

I ask because all those squiggly red underlines (spellcheck marks) makes it pretty unattractive, although they can be turned off. However, when distributing a document to others they may not know how to turn that off. Just wondering if you’ve found a better way for distributing code in word docs.
