Custom Animation Tricks

Q1:I created a slick custom animation for one slide, but I can't figure out how to copy the animation effects to other slides in my presentation.
A1: Although PowerPoint has no built-in way to copy a custom animation from one slide to another, here's an undocumented trick that lets you reuse custom animations: Make a copy of a slide, and then change the title and bullets on the copy. The copy includes all the custom animation settings of the original.

For example, if you've created a nifty custom animation on slide 20, how do you move it to slides 17, 18, and 19? You could edit the animation settings for each of the other three slides, but that's a cumbersome process. Instead, make three copies of slide 20, and then move the existing text from the old slides to the copies. Delete the old slides when you've finished.
