Using the AutoCorrect Feature
Capitalize Each Word: The first letter of each word is capitalized.
tOGGLE cASE: This option turns uppercase into lowercase and
turns lowercase into uppercase, for a ransom-note look.
4. Check the results.
Always double-check your text after using the Change Case command to
make sure that the result is what you intended. This is especially true when
you select Capitalize Each Word. In most cases, you should not capitalize
articles (like a and the ) and prepositions (like of and from ). The Capitalize Each
Word option capitalizes every word in the title, so you’ll have to manually
change articles and prepositions back to lowercase.
Slide titles should almost always use title case. The first level of bullets on
a slide can use title case, where all words except articles like a or the and
prepositions like for and to are capitalized, or sentence case, where only the
first word of each sentence is capitalized. Lower levels usually should use
sentence case.
Avoid uppercase if you can. IT’S HARD TO READ AND LOOKS LIKE YOU’RE
Using the AutoCorrect Feature
PowerPoint includes an AutoCorrect feature that can automatically correct
spelling errors and style errors as you type them. For example, if you
accidentally type teh, PowerPoint automatically changes your text to the. And
if you forget to capitalize the first word of a sentence, PowerPoint
automatically capitalizes it for you. AutoCorrect can even catch certain multi-word
mistakes. For example, if you type their are, AutoCorrect will substitute
there are.
Any time PowerPoint makes a correction that you don’t like, just press Ctrl+Z
to undo the correction. For example, if you really intended to type teh, press
Ctrl+Z immediately after PowerPoint corrects it to the.
If you move the insertion pointer back to a word that has been corrected (or
if you click the word), a small blue line appears beneath the first letter of the
word. Point the mouse at this blue line, and the button with a lightning bolt
in it appears. You can then click this button to bring up a menu that enables
you to undo the correction that was made, tell PowerPoint to stop making
that type of correction, or summon the AutoCorrect options dialog box to
adjust your AutoCorrect settings.
