Explore Fonts: Algerian

Explore Fonts: Algerian

Alan Meeks and Philip Kelly created Algerian. Initially, Algerian comprised only capital letters, but some font houses created a complete typeface that included small letters. Since Microsoft Office 4.3, Algerian has been bundled with each version of Office until Microsoft Office 2010. This abundant availability of Algerian probably resulted in its over-use.

AutoCorrect

AutoCorrect

The AutoCorrect feature in PowerPoint fixes hundreds of common typos and spelling errors within your PowerPoint slides, automatically as you type any text. AutoCorrect also maps specific keys to a symbol, such as replacing two en dashes with an em dash the moment you hit the Enter key. The best feature within AutoCorrect is that it works so seamlessly that you may even take it for granted. Conversely, AutoCorrect can also be a pain sometimes! You may for example not want the two en dashes to change to an en dash automatically. In this tutorial, you will learn how you can take advantage of AutoCorrect, and also how you can override its options as required.



AutoCorrect Options

AutoCorrect Options

As you type, the PowerPoint AutoCorrect feature automatically corrects common typos and spelling errors. How does PowerPoint know that a particular word is spelled wrong? Does it refer to some resource as a reference? Also, do you find some AutoCorrect options such as the capitalization of some words unnecessary? Several researchers working in different scientific fields actually have to use some words that cannot start with a capital letter, and the first thing they want to do is turn off the automatic capitalization.

Imagine this scenario: you have created a specialized, medical presentation that's full of squiggly, red, underlined words! These squiggly underlines indicate what PowerPoint considers to be as a misspelled word! Don't blame PowerPoint, because its medical terminology is somewhat limited. We do know that almost all the words in your medical presentation are perfectly valid as far as spelling is concerned. The silver lining here though is that you can teach PowerPoint to spell those words, and enhance PowerPoint's custom dictionary.
