I am looking for an effect where the text of a slide will be overwritten, one character at a time, by some new text.
i.e. if the slide said "Hello" it would transition to "Goodbye", with one letter at a time being replaced, from left to right.
Is there a preset animation that does this? I am using Powerpoint 2007.

Try setting this up using the effect options and setting it to animate by letter.
For example -
Create two textboxes one containing "Hello" and one containing "Goodbye". Layer them on top of each other.
- set "Hello" to Disappear, On Click, Effect - by letter
- set "Goodbye" to Appear, With Previous, Effect - by letter.
The animations work very smoothly. You can even tweak the speed that they work at.
The problem is that you'll see the letters in Hello and Goodbye don't exactly replace each other unless you use a monospace font like Courier New. Then the letters in each text box will overlay perfectly.[b]Catharine Richardson (WebGenii)

You can also create the effect of a mono spaced font with any font if you put every letter in its own text box and space them equally (see attached)

That works nicely. The spacing is not an issue.
njl100, thanks for the suggestion, may use it in the future, but I've got too much text on this slide to make that feasible.
