    Dictionary (PowerPoint XP)

    I created a PowerPoint presentation using my United States version, then sent it to an Australian client. She returned it with some edits and now I notice this file is using the Australian dictionary, e.g "labor" become "labour". In addition the words I have added to my Custom Dictionary are not recognized. How do I change the dictionary?

    Have you tried selecting the text and using Tools > Language to set the language of the text back to English (US)?

    As Stuart mentioned, you can set the language back to US English on the individual textboxes. For code to do this throughout a presentation, see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...468&Product=ppt. Although this is code for PPT 2000, I believe it should work fine in PPT 2002 (aka PPT XP) as well.
