Proofing your Work

By default, spell checking is turned on in Keynote, and misspellings will show up on your slides with red dotted underlines, as in any other iOS program.

To fix misspellings:

  1. Tap on a word with a red dotted underline.

    The dotted underline goes away, and a suggestion popover appears with one or more suggestions red-circle-a.jpg.

  2. Tap the replacement you want.

    Keynote replaces the misspelled word.

Using the Dictionary

Keynote uses the iPad’s built-in dictionary to give you definitions, which is useful for those times when you spell a word correctly, but still wonder, “Is that the right word in this context?” Wonder no more, my friend.

To use the dictionary:

  1. Select a word on a slide.

    The Edit popover appears.

  2. Tap More.

    The More popover appears (see gray-circle-d.jpg in “Finding and Replacing Text”).

  3. Tap Definition.

    The Dictionary popover appears, with the word’s definition red-circle-b.jpg.
