Word has stopped checking spelling

My copy of word has suddenly stopped checking the spelling and grammar even though the check spelling as I type box  etc are ticked. Earlier in the week it was fine. Is this a problem caused by the recent update, which failed to install correctly, so I had to do an online repair

This seems to affect only some documents. These are quite old and are originally in .doc format. Saving them in .docx does not seem to fix the problem
