How can I edit the Word 2013 spelling and grammar flags to accept contractions and such?

 

Thanks,

Can you type an example of what's being flagged?  I don't recall MS Word 2003 flagging contractions per se.

OB - Thanks for replying.

 

Here are some examples of contractions that have recently been flagged for correction:

 

I'm = I am.

can't = can not.

won't = will not

,,, and similar stuff of this genre ...

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks,

According to my research, this may be happening because you checked some boxes for style. If you uncheck the style options, Word should stop flagging contractions. Unfortunately, I don't have Word 2013 so I can't experiment.
