I have DPI 15.3 and using MS Office 365 Word 16 (downloaded to my PC). Many of the general DPI commands like "got to end of the line", or "bold that", or "highlight that yellow" are not working. I suppose I can manually jump around with my mouse and do them outside the DPI environment? However, that makes for a disjointed experience. 
Does anyone else have this problem? I also have the Grammarly Add-In installed but not active while I dictate.
Any thoughts on this would be great from the group. Thank you.

The reason "highlight that yellow" is not working is because it's not a Dragon command. Try "shade that in yellow."

The other commands should work. If not, here are few things to try:

1. Exit Word, exit Dragon, and restart your computer.

2. Make sure Natural Language commands for Microsoft Word are enabled: DragonBar > Tools > Options... > Commands > More Commands

3. Make sure the "NatSpeak Word AddIn" is enabled.

These Dragon commands should work but you might try substituting with end of line, shade that yellow and bold that. When working in Microsoft Word, you should see a green • in the DragonBar? Note that bold that and shade that yellow only work in Microsoft Word when you see the DragonBar green •. Also note that formatting the last phrase is somewhat inefficient.

If you were referring to disabling the Grammarly add-in then this should be all that is necessary.


You might additionally consider upgrading to Ver. 15.61
