  • 3. Word file open reverts back the defaul drive after sometime.
    Hi All! I am running into strange word file open issue. Please help with some ideas. Problem: We have the default location of the documents set to F drive by going into tools and Options and then file locations. When we open a document from the folder deep within the F drive, and after a short while we hit the file open again in the same word window, without closing the document, it shows other documents from the same folder. And thats what we like. Now for some reason, after some time, when I am working on a documentA in the F:\mydocs\issues\word folder, and I hit the file open again to show other documents within in the folder, it takes me all the way out to the F: drive. And I have to click all the subfolders again to get to where I was at. We have XP SP2 with Word 2000 patched. Please provide some ideas. Thanks.

You need to purchase the Office 2003 Proofing Tools CD and install Russian 
proofing tools from that.

Hello Edik

Office is not sold (at least not in retail) with more than a limited set 
of languages, sadly.

What you need is the Office Proofing Tools CD, it should still be 
available on the shelves or via ebay et al:

4.Change dictionary language for Word on Terminal Server


We have a Windows 2003 Terminal Server / Citrix environment with Office 2003 
SP2 US with the Dutch MUI published for our users. 
The Dictionary Language in Word is Dutch but it needs to be English US 
standard for all users. How can I change this for Terminal server users? I 
can not find a registry or policy setting to do this. Is this set by the 
Regional settings on the local pc or the terminal server?

Fond regards,

5.Canadian Dictionary language problem

I'm using Office 2007 on XP SP3.

Does anyone know why Spell Check using the English (Canadian) setting would 
ignore the word, "centre," when it's misspelled as "center"?

I write in U.S. English, but the custom dictionary of the document I'm 
writing is set (for various purposes) to Canadian English.  When I write, 
"center," the dictionary doesn't pick it up in Spell Check and suggest 
"centre" as per Canadian usage -- but, it does note when I spell "colour" as 
per American "color."

The whole document is set to Canadian English.  I went into the Custom 
Dictionary under WORD OPTIONS > PROOFING and checked to see if I had added 
"center" to the Canadian Custom Dictionary.  Not there.
