Parenthesis

Can Word and Powerpoint build an option in right click menu for inserting Parenthesis () on highlighted text ?

@Dawood99 In Word, running a macro containing the following code will enclose the selected text in parentheses

 

With Selection
    .InsertBefore "("
    .InsertAfter ")"
End With

 

While in Word 2003 it was an easy matter to customize the right click menu in the user interface, it is not so straight forward in current versions of Office and the simplest thing to do would be to assign the macro to the keyboard (Via File>Options>Customize Ribbon>Keyboard Shortcuts>Customize, or assign it to the Quick Access Toolbar.
I am not sure that it can be done in PowerPoint, but you might ask at:
