Does anyone know how to set the spell check language in one go for PowerPoint? For example, is there a way to set it for the entire document, instead of going through the individual slides?
Thanks!

some suggestions Sep 17, 2008

check out this posting if VBA doesn't scare you:

If you have a 'dead simple' PPT presentation, which means the author didn't use any text boxes, you can simply select all the text in the outline view on the left and then select the desired language. This always works for text entered directly on a slide, but it ignores text boxes.
