Setting Spelling and Grammar Options
There are many options available for controlling the spelling and grammar corrections
in PowerPoint. On the Proofi ng tab, the options under the When Correcting Spelling in
Microsoft Offi ce Programs section carry over to other Offi ce programs, so when you make
a settings change in one Offi ce app, it affects all of your other Offi ce apps. The settings in
the When Correcting Spelling in PowerPoint section apply only to PowerPoint.
To control how (and whether) the spelling and grammar checkers operate in PowerPoint, do
the following:
1. Choose File
Options, and click Proofing. The Proofi ng options appear (Figure 7.6).
2. Select or deselect any of the check boxes as desired in the When Correcting
Spelling in Microsoft Office Programs section:
Ignore Words in UPPERCASE. Prevents the spell checker from fl agging acronyms.
Ignore Words That Contain Numbers. Prevents the spell checker from noticing
words with digits in them, such as license plate numbers or model numbers.
