PPT: Animation Effect Doesn't Work with Auto Advance

Article ID: 169964

Article Last Modified on 8/17/2005



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft PowerPoint 95 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q169964


SYMPTOMS

If you apply an animation effect, such as Hide After Animation, and set the timing to start automatically, the animation effect does not work on the last object on the slide. (To locate the Hide After Animation effect, select the object, click Custom Animation on the Tools menu, click the Effects tab, and then click the After Animation drop-down list.)

CAUSE

Animation effects that control actions occurring after the animation for a selected object, occur with the next build step, such as a mouse click. They do not occur between automatic builds.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, set the timing option to On Mouse Click. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Select the object.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Custom Animation.
  3. Click the Timing tab.
  4. In the Start Animation section, click On Mouse Click.
  5. Click OK.


STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
