Word 2016: How to enable old style spell check dialog

How do you revert back to the former version of the spellchecker on Word 2016?  The new Editor version is clunky and time consuming.  Thanks!

Hi Cheri,

We would like to suggest you post the requirement to Word UserVoice.

I have found that Charles has post it, you can vote for the article:

You can also vote for the article provided in Charles's reply.

Thanks for your understanding.
