How to Turn Off PowerPoint 2007 Smart Tags

PowerPoint displays a Smart Tag if you enter text PowerPoint believes is a date, an address, a company ticker name, a place, a telephone number, or a person to whom you recently sent e-mail. If PowerPoint recognizes one of these entities, it places a purple dotted line underneath the data. Move the pointer over the purple dotted line and you see the Smart Tag icon. Click this icon and you see a shortcut menu with tasks.
