How to set spelling language as default

I am using Word 2000 SP3 on an XP Pro PC set with New Zealand Regional
Settings, including Language.
I cannot seem to get Word to default to English - New Zealand for all
documents I open or create - it defaults to English US.

Any clues gratefully appreciated.

Re: How to set spelling language as default

In Windows, click on Start | Control Panel | Regional & Language Options
| Languages tab | Details | Settings tab | Default input language:
<choose your language> | OK.

In Word, open a new or existing document. Press Ctrl+A to select all of
the text. Click on Tools | Language | Set Language | <choose your
language> | uncheck the "Detect language automatically" and "Do not
check spelling or grammar" boxes | Default | OK. If you are prompted to
save changes to your Normal.dot global template when you close Word, say
yes.

Is Adobe Acrobat 7.0 installed on the computer? If yes, then the
Acrobat 7.0 Create Adobe PDF toolbar add-in for Word prevents Word from
automatically saving changes to the Normal.dot template (which is where
some language settings are stored). See
http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowled....cfm?id=331259 for
several solutions to the problem.
