Windows 7: A quick macro fix for Word's wavy lines.

A quick macro fix for Word's wavy lines.

A few weeks ago, I discussed the blue wavy line that Word displays in response to an inconsistent format. Itís one of those options that annoy a lot of users even though itís a helpful tool. Users who need the feature more often than not, but occasionally want to disable it, can add a quick macro button to the toolbar.

First, you need a macro that toggles between the two states, enabled and disabled. Enter this macro in the ThisDocument module:

Sub ToggleWavyLines()

ĎToggle blue wavy lines.

Options.ShowFormatError = _

Not (Options.ShowFormatError)

End Sub

After entering the macro, return to the document and add the macro to a toolbar, as follows:
  1. From the Tools menu, choose Customize.
  2. Click the Commands tab.
  3. In the Categories list, select Macros.
  4. Drag the macro ToggleWavyLines macro from the Commands list to a toolbar and release.
