Thanks, I wasn’t aware that could be applied to just a specific format… I had always thought of it as document wide. Mind you, I don’t take advantage of 90% of the features in Word either. PDF sounds like a good option for distribution but don’t you still need to create the file in something else? I’ve only ever converted documents to/from PDF.

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.
