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.

We looked at how you can manually save and share your AutoCorrect entries from one installation of PowerPoint or Word to another. However, this is a time-intensive task that is also prone to errors.

You may have to create PDFs to share with others, and you may also have to edit some that you receive from others. You may also have to sign some agreements and contracts that show up as PDFs. While there are scores of PDF tools available including the Pro versions of Adobe’s Acrobat, most of us need a simple tool that makes these tasks easy and intuitive. And that’s exactly what our review is all about—we will explore Smallpdf, a suite of PDF tools that do not even need to be installed on your systems because it’s browser-based.

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.

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.
