The scheme is applied immediately to the selected slide(s). To apply this effect to all the slides in the presentation, click the Apply to all Slides button. To remove a transition, select No Transition from the top of the transition list. 24 Lesson Two Customizing Your Presentation

25 Adding Animations Just as you can create transitions from slide to slide, you can also create movement on individual pieces of a slide. This is called animation. 1. Using the tabs at the top of the Outline pane, switch to the Slides pane. 2. To apply an animation scheme to a limited number of slides, select these slides now. You can select more than one slide at a time by holding down [CTRL] as you click on each one. 3. Go to the Animation Tab. The Slide Design task pane will appear on the right. 4. Use the task pane to select the animation scheme desired. Each time you choose a scheme, a preview will be played for you. 5. The scheme is applied immediately to the selected slide(s). To apply this effect to all the slides in the presentation, click the Apply to all Slides button. To delete any animations, choose No Animation at the top of the scheme list. Introduction PowerPoint 25

26 Using Custom Animations 1. Navigate to the slide you wish to animate. 2. Go to the Animation Tab. The Custom Animation task pane will appear on the left. 3. Choose an object on the slide, such as a text placeholder or a graphic. 4. From the task pane, click on Add Effect and choose an effect. A preview will be played for you. 5. Continue to use the task pane to set other animation options such as direction or speed. Each change will result in another preview. 6. Repeat for each object on the slide you wish to animate. Each effect will appear as a list in the task pane in the order it will appear. You can hit Play at the bottom of the task pane to see a preview of all the animations together. You can also use the Reorder arrows to change the animation timings. 7. To remove an effect, select it from the list in the task pane or click on the corresponding number on the slide itself, then hit Remove at the top of the task pane. 26 Lesson Two Customizing Your Presentation
