If you’re like Mary Poppins (“Practically Perfect in Every Way”), you can
skip this chapter. Perfect people never make mistakes, so everything that
they type in PowerPoint comes out right the first time. They never have to
press Backspace to erase something they typed incorrectly, or go back and
insert a line to make a point they left out, or rearrange their slides
because they didn’t add them in the right order to begin with.
If you’re more like Jane (“Rather Inclined to Giggle;
Doesn’t Put Things Away”) or Michael (“Extremely
Stubborn and Suspicious”), you probably make
mistakes along the way. This chapter shows you how to
go back and correct those mistakes.
Reviewing your work and correcting it if necessary
is called editing. It’s not a fun job, but it has to be
done. A spoonful of sugar usually helps.
This chapter focuses mostly on editing text objects.
Many of the techniques also apply to editing other
types of objects, such as clip art pictures or drawn
shapes. For more information about editing other types of
objects, see Part III.
