MS Word Spell Check Fails in Resulting Word Doc - (Aspose.Words for .NET)


When outputting a MS Word document using Aspose.Words for .NET the MS Word spell check does not highlight (underline in red) those words that are incorrectly spelt.

We have already done the following:

  1. Ensured that in the merge template doc all text is set to UK language and the “do not spell check” is unchecked
  2. Based on issue #4599 we have tried using code to change LocaleId of an entire document. This does not help.

Any help really appreciated, Thanks, Tony

Hi Tony,
Thanks for your request. Could you please attach your template and simple code that will allow me to reproduce the problem? I will check the issue and provide you more information.
Best regards,


I have attached 4 files for you:

  1. The Merge .doc file
  2. An example output file .doc
  3. The code that outputs the merge (WordDoc.cs)
  4. LocaleChanger file

Thanks for your help.

Thank you for additional information. I managed to reproduce the problem on my side. Your request has been linked to the appropriate issue. You will be notified as soon as it is resolved.
Also, I found that the problem occurs only if save as DOC. If save the output as DOCX all works fine.
I used the latest version of Aspose.Words for testing. You can get it from here:
Best regards,

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-1586) have been fixed in this Aspose.Words for .NET 17.6 update and this Aspose.Words for Java 17.6 update.
