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 automatically change to an en dash — in this tutorial you will learn how you can take advantage of AutoCorrect, and also how you can override its options as required.
