Triggering an Animation
Animating Objects
To change the direction of a motion path, select Animations Effect Options
(Alt, A, O). A menu opens, showing the direction options for the path. If you
want to reverse the direction of the motion path, making the green and red
arrows switch places, choose Reverse Path Direction (Alt, A, O, R).
To change the shape of a motion path, select Animations Effect Options Edit
Points (Alt, A, O, E). When you do, handles appear along the motion path—the
more complex the path, the more handles. Click and drag a handle to change
the shape of the path.
Triggering an Animation
An animation trigger is an object on the screen that causes something to happen
when you click it. For example, a slide might show a list of different products. When
you click the name of a product (the trigger), a picture of that product appears.
To add an animation trigger, you need two things: an animated object and another
object to trigger the animation. The trigger might be some text, for example, and
the animated object a picture that enters the slide when you click the trigger. Figure
23-15 shows an example.

button (circled) and
select “On Click of” to
see a fly-out menu of
objects you can use to
trigger an animation.
In this example,
clicking the text will cause
the picture to enter by
zooming in.
When you’ve got the animated object and its trigger in place, follow these steps to
make the trigger start the animation:
1. SelectAnimations Trigger “OnClickof ”(Alt,A,AT,C).
A flyout menu lists the objects on your slide. Objects are numbered according
to the order in which you put them on the slide.
