Dear Sassy: I created a PowerPoint presentation and ran the spell checker, but I still noticed some misspelled words - especially in the headings. How do I catch those errors?
~ Can't Spell

Dear Spell: Of course you can spell! Sometimes Sassy's fingers don't type as fast as her brain thinks, or maybe it is the other way around... Anyway, there is a fix for your spelling errors. Sassy is guessing that your headings in your presentation are in all CAPS. Spell checker by default does not check words in all CAPS. To activate this feature click on Tools > Options > Spelling and Style. You will need to uncheck the "Ignore Words in Uppercase." Run the spell checker again and this should catch the misspelled words in all caps. On a side note, this also works in Word.
