Change the Animation Trigger
Something must trigger an animation to run, and you can determine what that trigger is. The
trigger can be the appearance of the slide on the screen, it can be you clicking anywhere on the
slide, or it can be you clicking a particular object on the slide. You can also trigger the animation to
run with or after another animation. The default trigger is clicking the slide, but you can change it
to any of the other triggers. Clicking the slide or an object on the slide gives you complete control
over when the animation runs.
