I have always spelt it with an ie. Now I am being told by Microsoft Word that my spelling is incorrect & should use a y. Google seems to largely agree with Word... one of the top hits is this forums thread:
tieing instead of tying
which in summary, is the same question as I am, but without the bias I have sầu. The answers all seem to suggest that everyone thinks the ie spelling is valid but weird.
I thought I would ask the experts...Is there any distinction?Is it possible that the ie is a UK spelling and y is US?

There is no entry in the Oxford chrissiemanby.com dictionary for tieing in American or British chrissiemanby.com.https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/us/spellcheck/chrissiemanby.com/?q=tieingAlthough tieing does (as shown in the Ngram graph cited by Sven Yargs above) exist as a rare alternative sầu spelling it is not recognized by dictionaries. In the oxford dictionary"s entry for tying there is no mention of the alternative "tieing".
