Editor Pane In Microsoft Word and Outlook 365

The new Editor Pane in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook checks our Documents or E-Mail Messages for spelling and grammar errors. It also makes suggestions for writing style, where these suggestions are based on the context of our writing.

The Editor Marks for errors in our documents and messages are the following:

  • Red squiggles for spelling errors
  • Blue double underlines for grammatical errors
  • Gold dotted lines for style

We must select the Review tab and from the left area of the ribbon named Proofing we select the command Spelling & Grammar as shown below.

Review - Proofing - Spelling And Grammar

Once we select the command Spelling & Grammar the Editor Task Pane appears at the right of the screen as shown below. In the Editor Task Pane, the whole sentence that is written in the Word Document and where the cursor was, is also in the text box. At the right of the text box where the sentence is located we notice also a small speaker. If we press the speaker the whole sentence will be pronounced.

The first error located in the Document for my example is the letter “acount”. I have misspelled it on purpose in order for the post and in the Editor Task Pane, we have the Suggestions area as shown below. We have the correct spelling for the word, as well with the meaning of it.

Editor Drop Down Menu

At the right of the correct word, if we select the drop down arrow, a menu will appear with the following options:

  • Read Aloud: If we choose this command the misspelled word will be Read Aloud.
  • Spell Out: If we choose this command the misspelled word will be Spelled Out.
  • Change All: If we choose this command, we will change the misspelled word with the one that we selected in the whole document.
  • Add To AutoCorrect: If we choose this command the Word will be added into AutoCorrect.
  • AutoCorrect Options: If we choose this command, the AutoCorrect dialog box appears where we can correct automatically typos, capitalization errors and misspelled words.

Right beneath this area we have available the following commands for the misspelled word and which are the following:

  • Add To Dictionary: If we choose this command, the word (either correct, wrong or unknown) the word will be added in the Custom Dictionary.
  • Ignore Once: If we choose this command, the word (either correct, wrong or unknown) the world will be Ignored Once.
  • Ignore All: If we choose this command, the word (either correct, wrong or unknown) the world will be Ignored in All the occurrences in the Document.

Add To Dictionary

At the end of the Editor Task Pane, we have available the Language that we can select from in order to do our Spelling. All we need to do is to press on the Language Link and straight away the Language dialog box will appear with all the available languages that we can select from.

If we continue to work in our document, the Editor Task Pane, will become unavailable. All we have to do to use it again is to press the Resume button as shown in the image below.
