Using Transitions Between Slides
INSIDE OUT Use the repeating effect option sparingly
Used improperly, the repeat effect (which you set by making a selection in the Repeat
box on the Timing tab of the effect options dialog box) can be more annoying than
inspiring. But it can be effective in some situations. In the example we use throughout
this chapter, three arrows appear, prompting the viewer to take an action and click a
picture. These arrows should remain highlighted until the viewer makes a choice.
To accomplish this, we set the emphasis animation effect on the arrows to Pulse and set
the Repeat option to Until Next Click. Then we set the animation start to After Previous
so that the emphasis and repeating happen automatically. This way, the arrows quietly
draw attention to themselves just enough to catch the viewer’s attention.
Using Transitions Between Slides
Animations affect individual objects on a slide; transitions affect how the slides themselves
enter the screen in Slide Show view. Like animations, transitions are worthy of their own
tab. You can assign a transition to any displayed slide by choosing a transition scheme from
the gallery shown in Figure 19-11.
Figure 19-11 The Transitions gallery offers several options and has been relocated to the
Transitions tab.
