There are times when you want to quickly create a document to jot down some steps. They are probably filled with short phrases. You don’t really care if the grammar is completely correct. You might be documenting UNIX commands that don’t have regular English spellings.
If you do this in Microsoft Word, it will immediately start showing the wavy underlines in red and green. It makes the doc hard to read on the screen. You don’t want to change the doc because the way it is now is exactly how you need it. The only things you want to get rid of are the red and green lines. Here’s how you can do it in a jiffy.
If you are using Microsoft Word 2010 or later, go to the File menu and choose Options.
In the options dialog, select the Proofing tab.
Notice that “Hide spelling errors” and “Hide grammar errors” are unchecked. Check them. And make sure you apply this exception to your current document only as shown below.
Now your document with all its “errors” will be clean as a whistle.
