Using AutoCorrect to Fix Common Problems
3. Click AutoCorrect Options. The AutoCorrect dialog box opens.
4. If it is not already displayed, click the AutoCorrect tab, shown in Figure 7.10.
Set up the corrections that you want PowerPoint to handle automatically as you type.
5. Select the options that you want. At the top of the dialog box is a series of check
boxes that help you to ﬁ ne-tune some other corrections that AutoCorrect makes in
addition to spelling corrections:
Show AutoCorrect Options Buttons. This option controls whether a button is
available to reverse an AutoCorrect action after the action occurs. (For more on
how to use this button, see the end of this section.)
Correct TWo INitial CApitals. If you accidentally hold down the Shift key too
long and type two capital letters in a row (such as MIcrosoft), PowerPoint cor-
rects this error if you leave this option selected.
Capitalize First Letter of Sentences. Leave this option selected to have
PowerPoint capitalize the ﬁ rst letter of the ﬁ rst word after a sentence-ending
punctuation mark, such as a period, or to capitalize the ﬁ rst letter of the word
that occurs at the beginning of a paragraph.
Click the Exceptions button to open an AutoCorrect Exceptions dialog box. Here, you can enter a list of capitalization exceptions,
such as abbreviations that use periods but aren’t at the end of a sentence (for example, approx. and Ave.) . You can also set up a
list of TWo INitial CApitals exceptions.
