Previously, when you spellchecked in Word, the dialog box contained the bit of text currently being checked would move down the page as you worked your way through the document. Now it remains stationary and you only work your way through the text displayed in the dialog, i.e. the surrounding, 'real' doc on which the dialog sits does not do anything.

It's only a minor irritation, but does anyone know why this is?

Works fine for me! Jan 18, 2007

I don't know what specific problem you have, Tina, but it works fine for me [using Word 2003 (FR version) under Windows XP (he)]

I wonder if it is something to do with your display settings, though I have tried it in all page modes and it seems to behave the same (i.e. as intended!) in all of them.

So I suspect you must have some kind of an anomaly...
