    VBA script to hilight bullets

    I need a script that allows the presenter to merely HILITE or animate just the bullet, instead of animating the text.
    Can all the text be shown at once and at the mouse click/enter just animate the bullet?

    Also, if there is a way of formatting all slides but Blank ones that would be bitchin' too...cuz I'm usully not happy with my first choice of background, then I do all of the art (Blank) slides. When I change all, it destroys everything in it's path. I need to retain the artwork on those (Blank) slides at least.

    1) animate the bullets. You'd have to bring the bullet in as a separate graphic - then animate that. With or without VBA.
    2)Go into Slide sorter view, select all the files (click on the first one, hold down SHIFT and click on the rest) that you want to format. Go to Format Background. Only the selected files will be formatted.

    Re: VBA script to hilight bullets

    Thanks, I keep forgetting how easy it is to do mass reformats in slide sorter view.
    So...I've got the graphics over the regular bullets. Of course the animation options are limited. Swivel seems to be the best one. What I'm doing is [after animation /hide on next mouse click]. Is there any way that I can hide the actual bullets while the animation is playing?

    I probably would format the text so that it isn't bulleted. But place the graphic so it looks like it is the bullet.
