Flag Problem Words Automatically

Flag Problem Words Automatically

This macro flags problem words in the MS. My favourite part of the Copyediting Newsletter treatment of my latest “Technically Speaking” column is the explanation of the parts of the macro. You can cut and paste this macro into your Word program. The column tells you how to customize it.

What I omitted for delicate readers were all the rude words my own macro flags so that words like pubic and cum don’t make it into the high school textbooks that I work on.
