The AutoCorrect feature in PowerPoint fixes a number of common typos and spelling errors within your slides — automatically as you type any text. AutoCorrect also lets you map specific keyboard sequences to a symbol, such as replacing two en dashes with an em dash the moment you hit the Enter key after the second en dash. The best feature within AutoCorrect is that it works so seamlessly that you may not even know that it is working behind the scenes. And this unawareness about AutoCorrect can ironically also cause some problems! You may for example not want the two en dashes to automatically change to an em dash — in this tutorial you will learn how you can take advantage of AutoCorrect, and also how you can override its options as required.
