Correcting Text While Typing


With AutoCorrect, PowerPoint corrects common capitalization and spelling errors as you type. You can customize AutoCorrect to recognize or ignore misspellings that you routinely make or to ignore specific text that you do not want AutoCorrect to change. When you point to a word that AutoCorrect changed, a small blue box appears under the first letter. When you point to the small blue box, the AutoCorrect Options button appears. The AutoCorrect Options button gives you control over whether you want the text to be corrected. You can change text back to its original spelling, or you can stop AutoCorrect from automatically correcting text. You can also display the AutoCorrect dialog box and change AutoCorrect settings.
