We all want to take the utmost care to compile our presentations flawlessly. Despite this, we may still encounter spelling errors while typing text in the slides.
To avoid this, Show offers a Spell Check feature to help you easily identify misspellings in your presentation without having to use a third-party spell checker. This helps you quickly formulate text correctly on your slide deck, improving the quality of your content.
The Spell Check option under Tools in the Review panel has a built-in dictionary it will use to check all the terms in your slide deck. The feature supports over 85 languages and will be enabled by default in Show. If there are any misspellings in the slide, the terms will be underlined in red.
All you have to do is select the misspelled word and right-click on it to pick a term from the list of alternative suggestions. This makes it easy for you to quickly find the correct version of what you meant.
At times, project-related terms or uncommon words will be flagged as errors in your presentation, even though they are correct. In such cases, you can add those terms to your own personalized dictionary so that they are no longer marked as errors on the slide.
To include words to your Personal Dictionary in Show,
- Open your presentation and click the Personal Dictionary option under Tools in the Review panel.
- Select a language from the drop-down and type the term you want to add in the Add New Word text box.
- Click the Add icon to include the terminology in your Custom Word List.
Also, you can select a term in the Custom Word List and tap the Remove icon to delete it from the list.
You can use the Check Now option under Spell Check when you have just corrected a misspelling and want to proceed to the next misspelled word in the presentation. The word will appear in the Misspelled Word text box. You can either ignore it or change it to a valid term on a specific slide or throughout the presentation. This helps you to save time and correct a recurring misspelling across the slide deck at once.
Additionally, you can use the Add to Dictionary option to add important technical jargon to your customized dictionary so that they can be used in presentations any time.
