bullets in the text box, and you want them to be animated with each second-level bullet
appearing separately. You can specify the second level as the animation grouping so that
all third-level bullets appear as a group along with their associated second-level bullet.
You can change the grouping level by choosing Animations
and then choosing one of these options:
■ As One Object. Makes the entire content placeholder a single animation event.
■ All At Once. Makes each paragraph a separate event, but assigns On Click to only
the ﬁ rst one; the others are set to animate with the previous paragraph (With
Previous), which means they occur simultaneously with the ﬁ rst one.
■ By Paragraph. Animates each paragraph separately and assigns On Click to each
event. This is the default.
If you have more than one level of bullets, the subordinate-level bullet points are ani-
mated along with their ﬁ rst-level parent when you use Animations
Paragraph. If you want bullets that are other than ﬁ rst-level bullets to be separately ani-
mated, you must set that up in the Effect Options dialog box. Follow these steps:
1. In the Animation pane, collapse the group (by clicking the double up arrow).
Then right-click the collapsed group and choose Effect Options.
2. In the Effect Options dialog box, click the Text Animation tab.
3. Open the Group Text drop-down list and choose the level at which you want to
group bullet points. For example, in Figure 16.11, I am grouping by second-level
Group by a certain level of paragraphs (bullets).
4. Click OK to accept the new grouping setting.
