I have really been ignoring what search terms land people at my blog but there are a lot of things that it looks like people might need help with that I have not blogged about yet. One of the search terms from yesterday was “spell check greyed out in Live Writer”.
If you ever run into this, what has happened is your dictionary language has been set to “(None)”. I cannot explain why this might be the case but there is an easy fix. Bring up the Options dialog (drop the Blog accounts drop down and select Manage blog accounts) and then select Spelling and then select the dictionary language you want to check spelling in. The Spelling option will no longer be greyed out in the ribbon.
