These become particularly important when you want your audience tovisualise numeric data. Different charts may be used depending on what the numericdata represents:  Pie charts are used for figures representing percentages.  Line charts are used to demonstrate a trend in numeric data.  Bar charts are used to compare different sets of numbers.To insert a graph in a slide: 1. Click Format menu. 2. Click Slide Layout… 3. Select Title & Chart Layout from the Slide Layout task pane. 4. Click OK button. 5. Double-click the graph placeholder.Note that:  MS PowerPoint displays a table containing data (a miniature spreadsheet) known as datasheet, and immediately below this a bar graph based on the table data.  If you click outside the graph, the datasheet will disappear. Double-click the chart to re-display the datasheet.A datasheet looks like a spreadsheet. Information is entered in cells, which are formedby the intersection of rows and columns. For most types of charts each columnrepresents a category of data, while each row is a data series, and is marked with asymbol – for example, a small 3-D bar – to indicate what type of chart you arecreating.26

  • 45. Spell Checking a PresentationBy default, MS PowerPoint checks the spelling of the text in your slides andpresenter‟s notes. Every single word in each slide and notes is compared to a built-indictionary available in MS Office. A wavy red line appears beneath words that are notfound in the dictionary.However, at times a word can be spelled correctly yet MS PowerPoint does not find itin its dictionary. Proper nouns (Rita), specialised terms (phototranspiration), acronymsand abbreviations (UOM) etc. are not likely to be in the MS Office dictionary. If you donot want MS PowerPoint to question such words during spell checks, you can addthem to a custom dictionary. In addition to spelling mistakes, MS PowerPoint alsoalerts you to repeated words - for example “the the” - and words that have an unusualpattern of capitalisation, such as “PLay”.To use the automatic spelling check: 1. Right-click the mouse over the word having a wavy red underline. 2. A pop-up menu appears listing any suggestions Word may have about the correct spelling or grammar, as well as the following choices: Ignore, Delete repeated word, Add, and Spelling. Click any suggestion and the appropriate option.You can also resolve errors without using the pop-up menu by simply editing the text.MS PowerPoint checks the spelling of the word again as soon as you move your cursoraway from it, and if the word is now spelled correctly, the red line disappears.To run the spelling and grammar check: 1. Click Spelling and Grammar button. 2. Click the appropriate options (refer to the following table). 3. Click OK button when MS PowerPoint displays a message that it has checked all text in the document.Option To Do ThisNot In Displays a possible error, such as an incorrectly spelled word, a duplicateDictionary word, a grammar error, or incorrect capitalization. Edit the text in this box to correct it, and then click Change, or click the correct word in the Suggestions box and then click Change.Suggestions Lists a number of words close to the incorrectly spelled word. Click the appropriate suggestion to choose it.Ignore Leaves the word unchanged and continues with the checking. The spell checker stops if the same word is encountered within the same document. This button changes to Resume if you click in the document to edit the document.42
  • 46. ECDL Syllabus 5 Courseware Module 6Option To Do ThisIgnore All Leaves the word unchanged and skips any occurrences of the same word within the entire document throughout the rest of the current MS PowerPoint session.Add Adds the word in the Not In Dictionary box to the custom dictionary.Change Replaces the incorrectly spelled word with the highlighted word/phrase in the Suggestions: box. When the selected error is a repeated word, this button changes to Delete so you can easily remove the second instance of the word.Change All Replaces all occurrences of the same incorrectly spelled word with the word/phrase in the Suggestions: box.Autocorrect Adds a word to the AutoCorrect list so that Word can correct any incorrect spelling of it automatically as you type.Note that:  If the insertion point or selection was not at the beginning of your document when you begin checking spelling, MS PowerPoint asks if you want to continue checking from the beginning of the document.  MS PowerPoint doesnt check the spelling in embedded objects such as charts or in inserted objects such as MS Word documents.  If the insertion point is in the notes pane or slide pane, the spelling check alternates checking between the two. If the insertion point is on the Outline tab, all the slides are checked first, then all the notes.PrintingLike all other computer application programs, MS PowerPoint has its printing features.These are somewhat different from MS Word, because you can print differentcomponents of your presentation. You can print slides, outlines, notes pages, andhandouts. 1. Click File menu. 2. Click Print... The Print dialog box will be displayed. 3. Select the range of slides or notes pages to be printed. 4.

If you type only a beginning number, all slides or notes pages from that slide or notes page will be printed. If you want to print only one slide or notes page, type that slides number in both boxes.Handouts (2 slides Prints two slide images per page (use for the largest images and theper page) greatest amount of detail). 43

An outline can be formatted or unformatted (plain text) and expanded or collapsed (titles only). Also, the type size depends on the view scale in which you are working.Scale To Fit Paper Scales slides automatically to fit the paper loaded in your printer.Frame Slides Adds a thin frame around the border of printed slides, handouts, and notes pages.Include comment Prints pages containing comments for all slides that containpages comments. When printing slides, all comments for a slide are printed on one page. When printing handouts, a comment page contains comments from all the slides on a handout page.Print Hidden Slides Prints all hidden slides. Otherwise, slides marked as hidden arent printed.Pure Black & Turns all colours fills to white, all text and lines to black, adds outlinesWhite or borders to all filled objects, and renders pictures in greyscale. This option is useful when you want to print draft copies on a colour printer or when you want to print very readable speakers notes and handouts.Black & White Turns all fills to white (or black and white, if patterned).
