What is the yellow star image that displays in the lower-right corner of some clips in the
Clip Art task pane?
The star indicates the image is animated and will move when the slide containing this clip is
displayed during a slide show.
Why is this globe clip displayed in this location on the slide?
The slide layout does not have a content placeholder, so PowerPoint inserts the clip in the
center of the slide.

remain open until you close it. The following steps add one clip to Slide 2.
Click the Next Slide button to display Slide 2.
