PowerPoint 2003: Using Find & Replace

PowerPoint 2003: Using Find & Replace

You already know how to create a PowerPoint presentation and you know all sorts of different ways to view your presentation. But, do you know how to quickly find a specific word or phrase? And, do you know how to replace one word or phrase throughout your presentation with another?

Find

The Find feature quickly searches your presentation for a specific word or phrase in your presentation. This is particularly useful when searching for text that appears more than once.
