Problem with Mac OS X and Microsoft Word

    I have noticed for a while that there seem to be some problems with
    Microsoft Word ever since I installed Mac OS X last year.

    More specifically, when doing a spell check on text written on Microsoft
    Word, I notice that I no longer have the ability to add words that the
    spell checker doesn't recognise.

    Has anybody else noticed this problem? What can be done to rectify it?

    Thanks in advance.

    You have to define a user dictionary to hold the added words. Look for
    that option.
