Just looking for the red underlining when typing wrong, but does not seem to work.
I have already been to Options > [something like] Checking while writing but nothing happens.
Thanks in advance!

Hi María

Go to: File / Options / Editor / Spelling / Active Spell Checker: Select MS Word Spell Checker.

Good luck
