Part IV: Simply PowerPoint > Animating and Timing Your Presentation

Chapter 12. Animating and Timing Your Presentation

Now that you know the tricks of creating, editing, and formatting your Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, you’re ready to add the polish that turns it into a real show. You’ll work in Slide Sorter view to control how your presentation behaves, adding such items as:

  • Special setup options that determine whether your slides are advanced automatically or manually and whether your show loops continually or plays once and then stops.

  • Animation schemes that give your slides extra impact by adding special effects to the text and objects on your slides.

  • Transitional effects—fades, wipes, dissolves, sound effects, and more—which control how slides appear and disappear.

  • Speaker notes that give other presenters clues about how to handle certain slides

  • Settings that hide certain slides for some presentations, enabling you to customize the effect for different audiences.

  • Setting that control the timing of your slides, determining the amount of time the slides appear on the screen in a slide show that advances automatically.
