AutoCorrect options not available in Microsoft Word Online

Explorer | Level 4

The AutoCorrect options don't seem to be available when opening documents from Dropbox in Word Online. When I open one from OneDrive it's there though. Is there a way to enable it in DropBox as well?

In DropBox:

Hi @petholla, thanks for the screenshots! Definitely provide a better visual of what you mention. 
 
Could you also clarify if this is happening to every MS Word file, or other MS file types as well?
 
Let me know what you find!

Hey,

I've checked Excel and Powerpoint and they don't even seem to have Spelling and Grammar checks under review in Office Online no matter the cloud storage source so it seems like a Word only thing. I can consistently see the option in Word documents opened from OneDrive and consistently don't see it when opening them from DropBox.

Thanks,

Peter

Thanks for letting me know, @petholla!
 
Since this isn’t something directly available as an option, I’d be more than happy to pass your feedback along to the dev team on this for future consideration. 
 
In the meantime, if you have any other thoughts you’d like me to forward, don’t hesitate to get back to me.  
 
Cheers!

Can you check with them if it's expected not to have the option for some reason or it's a bug?

Thanks,

Peter

Hey again @petholla, it’s currently not an option available.  
 
Hope this helped at least to some extent!
