Ppt 2003 - creating several animations at once

Post by donnachris » Sat, 31 May 2008 06:57:04

I'm using Ppt 2003 and want to have a 3-line text box do some specific
animations. It's in the middle of the page: I'd like to have it
appear, then simultaneously shrink and move up into a corner- then,
have just the first line of text change from white to red, and become
bolded. Is there a way to do this? I keep coming up with some pretty
weird results! Thanks for any help-

P.S. Is there a specific site/book/resource you could recommend about
creating custom animations? Thanks-

For this type of thing I would create 3 seperate text boxes.

I'd assign each text box 'custom animations' of

1) "motion path - diagonal up right"
2) "emphasis - grow/shrink - smaller"

Each would be set to not to wait for a mouse click but "with previous"

After all 3 boxes had moved

I'd then set the 1st text box with

3) "emphasis - change font color - to red - fast"
4) "emphasis - change font style - bold"

For 3 and 4 - I'd set just (3) to "after previous" so that it changes
bold/red after it's moved to the corner
