Spell Checking After-the-Fact
The spell checker can’t tell you when you’ve used the wrong word but
spelled it correctly. For example, the second bullet point in Figure 4-1
mentions dime navels instead of dime novels. Cheap literature might be a bad
thing, but cheap citrus certainly is not.
Spell Checking After-the-Fact
If you prefer to ignore the constant nagging by PowerPoint about your
spelling, you can always check your spelling the old-fashioned way: by running the
spell checker after you finish your document. The spell checker works its way
through your entire presentation, looking up every word in its massive list of
correctly spelled words and bringing any misspelled words to your attention.
It performs this task without giggling or snickering. As an added bonus, the
spell checker even gives you the opportunity to tell it that you’re right and it’s
wrong and that it should discern how to spell words the way you do.
The following steps show you how to check the spelling for an entire
1. If the presentation that you want to spell check is not already open,
open it.
2. Open the Review tab on the Ribbon and then click the Spelling button
found in the Proofing group (shown in the margin).
3. Tap your fingers on your desk.
PowerPoint is searching your presentation for embarrassing spelling
errors. Be patient.
4. Don’t be startled if PowerPoint finds a spelling error.
If PowerPoint finds a spelling error in your presentation, it switches to
the slide that contains the error, highlights the offensive word, and
displays the misspelled word along with a suggested correction, as shown
in Figure 4-2.
5. Choose the correct spelling and click the Change button.
Alternatively, click Ignore and laugh in PowerPoint’s face.
If you agree that the word is misspelled, scan the list of corrections
that PowerPoint offers and select the one that you like. Then click the
Change button.
