Figure 21-6:
When you insert a
hyperlink, the text
you selected to hold
the link appears in
the “Text to display”
box. The address of
the web page you’re
linking to goes in
the Address box. If
you want, click the
ScreenTip button to
display text when the
pointer hovers over
the link.
After you’ve inserted a link, right-click the linked text to perform any of these actions:
Edit Hyperlink opens the Edit Hyperlink dialog box, which looks just like
Figure 21-6, except that it has the information for the current hyperlink already
filled in. Make the changes you want, and then click OK.
Open Hyperlink tests the link you inserted by opening the web page in your
default web browser.
Copy Hyperlink copies the text and its inserted link so you can paste them
Remove Hyperlink deletes the hyperlink, while leaving the text in place.
Checking Your Spelling
Nothing distracts your audience like an obvious typo or a spelling goof in the middle
of a slide. But PowerPoint, like other Office programs, has you covered with a
builtin spell checker. The first line of defense is AutoCorrect. As in Word, PowerPoint
has a list of built-in AutoCorrections that fix common misspellings and typos as
you type. So if you accidentally type taht instead of that , PowerPoint automatically
corrects the mistake.
Tip: You set PowerPoint’s AutoCorrect and AutoFormat options the same way you do for Word. Check out
the how-tos starting on page 122.
PowerPoint also checks your spelling as you type, throwing a squiggly red line under
any word that’s not in its dictionary. Right-click an underlined word and choose the
correct spelling from the suggestions in the shortcut menu. PowerPoint replaces the
error with the correct word.
