Proofing: AutoCorrect Options in PowerPoint

As you type, the PowerPoint AutoCorrect feature automatically corrects common typos and spelling errors. How does PowerPoint know that a particular word is spelled wrong? Does it refer to some resource as a reference? Also, do you find some AutoCorrect options such as the capitalization of some words unnecessary? Several researchers working in different scientific fields actually have to use some words that cannot start with a capital letter, and the first thing they want to do is turn off the automatic capitalization.

Proofing: AutoCorrect in PowerPoint

The AutoCorrect feature in PowerPoint fixes hundreds of common typos and spelling errors within your PowerPoint slides, automatically as you type any text. AutoCorrect also maps specific keys to a symbol, such as replacing two en dashes with an em dash the moment you hit the Enter key. The best feature within AutoCorrect is that it works so seamlessly that you may even take it for granted. Conversely, AutoCorrect can also be a pain sometimes! You may for example not want the two en dashes to automatically change to an en dash.

We explored how you can convert your normal bulleted text to a SmartArt graphic with just a click or two.

SmartArt: Adding New Shapes to Existing SmartArt Graphics in PowerPoint

Once you insert a SmartArt graphic within PowerPoint (or convert some bulleted text to SmartArt), you may want to add more shapes to your SmartArt graphic. Fortunately, you can make these additions and later edit them too. You can add more shapes to your existing SmartArt graphics either from within the SmartArt graphic itself or through the Text Pane. Note that adding a new shape to a SmartArt graphic entirely depends on the SmartArt variant that you are using; some variants offer more options than the others.

Proofing: Spell Check in PowerPoint

For presentations that contain slides with too much text, or even little text, there are always chances of spelling mistakes showing up! However, you don’t necessarily have to search for these mistakes by skimming all your slides one by one since PowerPoint lets you do a spell check of the entire presentation, and make corrections as well. However there are some caveats associated with spell checking, and this does not have anything to do with PowerPoint.

Proofing: Spell Check Options in PowerPoint

Has it ever happened that you know that a particular word is misspelled, but PowerPoint’s spell check doesn’t seem to think so! That may be because your word may be in all CAPS, or it may contain some numbers. In these cases, and in several other instances, PowerPoint just ignores any misspellings. Fortunately, you can turn off the options that instruct PowerPoint to ignore these misspellings. Remember though that changing these options will apply to all Microsoft Office 2016 applications you have installed on your computer including Word, Excel, and Outlook.
