    Bring animated points in all at once! (PPT XP >)

    Hi all,

    Lets say I have a slide with 10 points. The points are animated to peek in one by one during the presentation.
    I would like to know if there is a way to bring ALL the points in all at once if the need requires it. I do not want to skip the slide, but press for instance CTRL + A and the animation text build sequence is ignored and all remaining points (of the origional 10) come in immediately.
    Is there a shortcut key, or another way to do this!

    Thanx
    Regards,
    Rudi

    The fancy way is to have a hidden copy of the slide without the animations and then put a shape on the animated slide that will take you to the hidden slide and a shape on the hidden slide to take you back. IE very ugly and time comsuming. A faster way is to copy all of the slides, turn off animation, and then use right-click to navigate to the non-animated versions. Both ways are ugly! I'm going to see if I can write a macro to do it. If I can, I'll post back. --Sam

    I was thinking you might be able to use trigger animations to do this, but when I experimented, I couldn't get it to do exactly what you want. Nuts.

    Thanx Sam, i'm hoping you will succeed as it will be of great use to me. I sometimes have presentations of 50+ slides, and sometimes, due to the volitile nature of the audience, I need to show all the points and find the need to by-pass the build animation. The other advice you gave can do the job, but its way too much effort to create duplicate slides for this nature.
    I will keep my eye out on this board and hope you can get some macro functional.
    Thanx for your time! <img src=/S/hailpraise.gif border=0 alt=hailpraise width=27 height=22>

    In this case, before you run the show, just use the SlideShow | Set Up Show... menu and check the Show without Animation checkbox. I hope this is enough because I'm not having much success with a macro.

    Thanx for that advice.
    My request was for individual slides, not the whole slide show. So the show without animation is not going to assist here!
    Sam. I appreciate your attempts and am grateful for your advice.
    I will continue to work on it from my side...but for now I will just have to live with it! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>
