- Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007
Consider the following scenario. You show a slide that contains a Microsoft Graph chart in a Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 slide show. When you click to advance to the next animation effect, Microsoft Graph opens the chart in a separate window as expected. You exit Microsoft Graph, and then return to the slide show. However, when you click to advance to the next slide or animation effect, Microsoft Graph again opens the chart object in a separate window.
This problem occurs ever time that you exit Microsoft Graph, and then click to advance to the next slide or animation effect.
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
- The chart on the slide is a Microsoft Graph chart object.
- The chart object has one of the following Object Action custom animation effects assigned to it:
In this scenario, the chart object is opened in Microsoft Graph whenever the animation effect for the chart object is triggered. This action also resets the animation count for the slide. Therefore, when you return to the slide show, and then click to advance to the next slide or animation effect, the Object Action effect is triggered again.
To work around this problem, use one of the following methods.
Go to the next slide
When you are on the slide that contains the chart object during the slide show, right-click the slide, click Go to Slide, and then click the next slide in the presentation. If the slide that contains the chart object is the last slide in the slide show, right-click the slide, and then click End Show.
Remove the Object Action effect
- Open the presentation, locate the slide that contains the chart object, and then click the chart object.
- On the Animation tab, click Custom Animation in the Animations group.
- Click Remove in the Custom Animation pane.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
