    AutoFormat reg setting (Powerpoint XP SP3)

    Hello

    I was wondering if theres a registry setting to turn on the powerpoint option
    goto the menu Tools>AutoCorrect Options> tab AutoFormat As You Type> select checkbox 'AutoFit body text to placeholder' to turn on?

    many thanks
    diana :-)

    I'm pretty sure it is stored in the registry, but by default it is on so why do you want to turn it on? Note that you can also temporarily turn it off for a given placeholder by using the AutoFit Options button that appears to the left of the text.

    Diana,

    usual caveat ' dont mess with the registry - at your own risk - take a backup - etc etc '

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice11.0PowerP ointOptions]

    "AutoFitTextBody"=dword:00000000
    "AutoFitTextTitle"=dword:00000000

    I guess changing 'dword' from all the noughts (OFF) to
    dword:00000001

    equals ON

    Cheers
