Add to Dictionary option is grayed out
I'm using Office 2007 (under Vista Home Premium, SP1) along with a Dutch

Have just had to reinstall word from office 2003 after a major crash. It will
now not allow me to add a word to the dictionary when it thinks the spelling

It would be really useful to have a drop-down list of current dictionaries
when you right-click a word to add to dictionary. I work on multiple diverse
projects - from programming to fiction writing - so, unless I can be bothered
