I am using Google Drive to create and edit a new document. How can I hide spelling and grammar errors in that document? I.e make the red lines below my words disappear

  • What is the use case? Are you spelling words incorrectly on purpose? Is it a product name that throws a red line? – OnenOnlyWalter Oct 27 '12 at 16:43

    I am writing the document in another language other than English, so red lines are everywhere – Chin Oct 27 '12 at 16:46

Under "View" menu, un-select "Show spelling suggestions". I believe it's on a per user basis - effective to all documents you own.

    Or change the language setting. File --> Language. – user105973 Oct 16 '15 at 5:12
  • @Dave, that's another effective solution. Why don't you add it as an additional answer to the question so it is more visible to users? Comments are for more conversational purposes. – SightSpirit Oct 16 '15 at 15:32
