Adding Transitions and Animations
6. If you want the selected options to apply
only for the currently selected slides, you
don’t have to do anything else, but if you
want the same transitions applied to all
slides in the presentation, choose
Transitions>Timing>Apply To All.
To remove a transition, select the slide,
choose Transitions>Transitions to This Slide
and click the None option.
An animation is similar to a transition, but a
transition moves from one slide to another, whereas an
animation moves an individual object on or off the
screen within a slide. PowerPoint comes with quite
a few preset animation schemes.
Pick an object animation type.
If necessary, switch to Normal view by
choosing View>Presentation Views>Normal. You
cannot assign animations in Slide Sorter view
because you cannot select the component
you want to assign an animation.
4. Hover your mouse over any of the animation
choices to see your selected object with the
animation. Click the animation you want.
2. Display the slide you want to assign an
animation and then select the component you
want to animate. It could be a slide title or
any graphic element. You will see in the next
section how to animate a bullet list, and later
in this chapter I show you how to apply an
animation effect to an individual chart
element such as a series or category.
Since an animation is a transition for an
element, when you view the presentation
in the Slide pane or the Slide Sorter view,
slides with animations have a small
starshaped icon next to or under the slide.
3. Choose Animations>Animations and click
the More button. A gallery of options
appears. Select from the Animation gallery
seen in Figure 17-4.
