moderated Re: help with correcting a misspelled word
Okay. In Word 2016, try this:
Alt-f, then t for “Options.”
P for “Proofing.”
Alt-c at the same time to take you directly to “Custom dictionaries….”
Now you’re given an option and told 1 of 2. Arrow down once for the second option, which is “Custom…”
Tab to “Edit word list” and press spacebar.
Tab once and you’ll land in the list of words you’ve added to the dictionary. Here you arrow down through the list.
When you find the word you wish to delete, tab to the delete button.
That’s as far as I got in going through this procedure just now. You’ll need to tab to find out if there’s an “Okay” or other button to confirm the action.
I don’t know why MS had to make this so complicated. I tried to make these instructions as clear and accurate as I could, and I hope they help.

Yes, this is what I meant. I am using Word 16.0.12130
I want to be sure I understand the problem. Did you add a word to the Word dictionary, only to realize you’d misspelled it? and now you want to remove that added spelling/word?
Word used to have a function that made such a fix easy. I think it was an “options” button. But it it’s no longer there in Word 2016. I don’t know about immediately preceding or later versions.
If this is a correct interpretation of your query, please give the list the version number of Word you’re using so that the answer can be responsive.
In a document I changed a word in spell check that I thought was correct. I discovered later that I had misspelled that word. I typed the correct spelling in my document & then opened spell check. It only showed me the misspelled word from before & there was no option to delete or add the corrected spelling. Where do I make this change? I went into dictionary manager & it only showed me languages. The example of the word I am describing is this; Zorumites is the word I changed but is misspelled. Zoramites is the correct spelling.
Thanks for the help.
