A PowerPoint Intermission Animation
Posted by - NA - on 01 April 2006 02:32 AM

When you're presenting a PowerPoint slide show, you might want to use an animated slide during the intermission period. You can set this up to run continuously until you start the next part of the show.

As an example, suppose you create a slide that contains only the title of your presentation using WordArt (choose Insert/Picture/WordArt). With the WordArt in place, right click it and choose Custom Animation. Click the WordArt object to select it. Next click the arrow at the right side of the "Entry animation and sound" list box and select Swivel from the list. Now click the Order & Timing tab and select the "Automatically" radio button. Leave the timing at the default of 00:00 and click OK to close the dialog box and apply the settings. Click Slide Show/Set Up Show. When the dialog box opens, select the "Loop continuously until Esc'"check box and click OK to close the dialog box. Next choose Slide Show/Slide Transition and select the "Autom! atically after" check box. Set the time to two seconds and click Apply to close the dialog box and save your new selections. Now press F5 to view the animated slide.
