Checking Your Spelling

PowerPoint allows you check your spelling in two ways. By default, the program checks spelling as you type, and misspellings show up on your slides with red dotted underlines (Figure 4.45). Right-click on the underlined word to get a shortcut menu that includes possible replacements. Or you can check spelling manually.

To check spelling manually:

  1. Choose Review > Proofing > Spelling (Figure 4.46), or press F7.
