Custom Animation Dim not working on last bulleted item

Postby UkwgRGFuaWVscw » Sun, 10 Jul 2005 10:12:03 GMT

I have set up the lists on my slides to enter in by: descend, fast, after 
previous, and dim to pale yellow.  My bullet lists vary in size and in the 
preview this all works fine.  When I run the slide show, the last bulleted 
item stays white when run automatically and if run by mouse click you have to 
click to turn it yellow.  Only on the slides where I have a graphic animating 
onto the scree; after the bulleted lists; does the last bullet dim.  One 
exception, one slide in this whole mess works and a chart that is set to 
enter with zoom is the next slide.  This is the same in three presentations I 
have created and none of them work.  Please help.

So you have come up with your work-around, but may not recognized it.

Add an item off the slide (so the audience will not see it) and animate it 
to appear after the last item on your list.  this way your last list item 
will dim.

1.Custom Animation not working on 1 slide (but works throughout)

I'm working with ppt 2002. The custom animations & transitions work 
throughout my entire presentation --except when I get to this ONE slide. And 
it used to work. Anyone know why this may be & how I can fix it?

Sound starts w/ the beginning of the slide & then the 1st animation proceeds 
"with previous" just fine. the following animations are supposed to happen 
"after previous" --but they don't. the music just continues to play & the 1st 
animation never exits. 

Would Appreciate any help. ~Thanks, Saeedah

In Custom animation bar the top section is not to be clicked upon. What to do?

4.Custom animation -- appear and dim

I have a bulleted list with a custom animation of Appear on each point. Each 
time I click the mouse, a new point appears, and after the last point, it 
advances to the next slide.

I like the idea of dimming the previous points when the next one appears. 
However, when I add the dimming effect, the slide doesn't advance after the 
last point. When I click the mouse after the last point has appeared, it 
dims. I have to click again to get the slide to advance.

Is it possible to use the dimming effect, but get the slide to advance by a 
mouse click after the last point has appeared?


5.Custom Animation - Dim instead of Hide

One of the After Animation options is "Hide on Next Mouse Click."

I have a series of text boxes that I would like to DIM on next mouse click, 
rather than Dim After Animation.  However, I can only configure the text 
boxes to HIDE on the next mouse click, not DIM.

Is there a way to configure the animation to DIM on next mouse click, as a 
variation of the Hide on Next Mouse Click option?
