The Power of Story in Speaking

December 2, 2021

As humans, stories are a part of our DNA. We are drawn to stories. We can never get enough of them. As hunter-gatherers, we likely gathered around the fire to share stories for the purpose of ensuring our survival. From the advent of the printing press in 1450 by Johannes Gutenberg to the birth of moving pictures in the early 20th century, stories remain at the heart of our transmission of information to each other.

Creating and Editing Custom Dictionaries in PowerPoint 365 for Windows

November 30, 2021

Although PowerPoint provides a spelling dictionary that contains a list of the most common words, you might be working on a particular project that uses uncommon words not found in everyday parlance. You could edit a custom dictionary or load ready-made third-party dictionaries within PowerPoint. However, have you thought about creating a dictionary yourself that includes a set of words for a particular project? If you need to do a legal presentation for a client once a year, you could create a separate dictionary for just this one project, and then edit it as required within a text editor such as Notepad.

Creating Formatted AutoCorrect Entries

November 24, 2021

We explored differences between formatted and unformatted AutoCorrect entries in our Saving and Sharing AutoCorrect Entries tutorial. While you can use some preset formatted AutoCorrect entries in PowerPoint, you cannot create them in PowerPoint. Also, you cannot use all sorts of formatted content in PowerPoint. While some content with formatted text and dingbat fonts may work, and even this is a big "if", other content such as images, tables, etc. work only in Microsoft Word, and not in PowerPoint. In this tutorial, we will look at both these scenarios.

Saving and Sharing AutoCorrect Entries in PowerPoint 365 for Windows

Over a while, your custom AutoCorrect entries will become a huge asset while working in PowerPoint. You'll be used to typing some characters that will automatically show up as a word or a phrase, and everything would seem awesome until your computer crashes, or if you want to move to a new computer system. Also, you may need to share your AutoCorrect entries with your colleagues, or even back up and save them for a rainy day. It's quite possible to achieve this task, but not without some help from Microsoft Word, as we shall learn in this tutorial.

Setting Spell Check Options in PowerPoint 365 for Windows

November 8, 2021

Has it ever happened that you knew that a particular word is misspelled, but PowerPoint's spell check doesn't seem to think so! That may be because your word may be in all CAPS, or it may contain some numbers. In these cases, and several other similar instances, PowerPoint ignores some misspellings. Fortunately, you can turn off the options that instruct PowerPoint to ignore these misspellings. Remember though that changing these options will apply to all Microsoft Office applications you have installed on your computer including Word, Excel, and Outlook.
