Hi All,
Does any one out there know if at all possible how to change the color of the wavy in Word 2003 spellchecker?
I found a procedure for Word 2007 on the Microsoft website, but nothing for the 2003 version.
Thanks in advance

Thank you very much Itsvan, works like a charm.
As a matter of interest to others, they tell you to restart Word, but you actually need to reboot.

Thanks for your question Dec 17, 2010

I learn something every day and I had never thought that it might be possible to change the spellcheck colors. I have no problem with distinguishing colors (including some my husband might claim are imaginary), but I have still seen conflicts with Track Changes, etc.
