Temporary Workaround

To temporarily work around this problem, use either of the following methods:
  • Copy the text to a new document but do not copy the last paragraph mark.

  • Save the document in Rich Text Format (RTF), and then reload and save as a Word document again ("round-trip" the file).
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem with the Portuguese/Brazilian proofing tools under Microsoft Windows 95. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft Office 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP-3).
