Setting Animation Timing
CAUTION !
After an effect has been applied, going back to the Animation gallery to change it
applies another animation to the same object. Use the Animation Styles option in the
Animation group to modify a selected animation.
Setting Animation Timing
In our example, we’ve successfully set how each object should appear on the slide. Further,
by adding the animations in the order we want them to occur, we saved the step of having
to reorder them later (from either the Animations tab or the Animation pane).
By default, each newly added animation is set to appear “on click.” But for some animations,
it’s nice if they simply happen. For instance, for our text placeholder with three bullets, we
don’t want to have to click to make each new bullet appear. Instead, we can time these
bullets so that they enter the slide automatically.
These types of timings can be set for an entire text box, but when the effect option is set to
show by paragraph, the text box has a separate animation for each paragraph. This means
you have to select all the affected animations before you change the start and duration.
You can do that by selecting the entire text box (not just clicking inside it), or by using the
Ctrl or Shift keys to select the affected animations in the Animation pane. (You can see how
properly naming your slide objects comes in handy.)
On the Animations tab, you work with options in the Timing group, shown in Figure 19-6,
to control animation timing. To have selected animations occur automatically, one after
another, click the arrow next to the Start option and choose After Previous. Choosing With
Previous displays all selected animations on the slide at the same time.
Figure 19-6 Use the Start, Duration, and Delay options on the Animations tab to control when
an animation begins and how long it lasts.
