Chapter 21. Customizing PowerPoint > Setting AutoCorrect Options

Setting AutoCorrect Options

AutoCorrect is a useful feature that can help save you time and automatically correct mistakes you frequently make. If you need to enter a long term or name frequently, it can save you time and effort if you enter a shorter term and have PowerPoint automatically enter the longer term. For example, let's say the name of your latest product is “All Natural, Fat-Free Chilly Cherry Sorbet.” You're tired of typing that phrase over and over, so you set up an AutoCorrect entry named “CCS” and have PowerPoint automatically enter “All Natural, Fat-Free Chilly Cherry Sorbet” any time you type the letters “CCS”. Entering your initials instead of typing your full name is another example of how you could use this feature.

In addition, if you know you always misspell a particular word, you can enter the word as you normally misspell it in the Replace field and the correct spelling in the With field.
