    Determine transition used on completed presentatio (Office 2003 SP1)

    I often need to view PowerPoint presentations that were created in the past and I'd like to know how to determine which Transition was used and also which Custom Animation scheme was used. Surely this information is contained somewhere in the presentation. I haven't been able to find it.

    Can someone help?

    Thanks!

    I answered this same question yesterday in the Microsoft PowerPoint newsgroup. The questions were worded almost identically. So, assuming that you also posted that question, let me know if the response did not answer the question and we'll try again.

    Yes, it was me! I haven't been able to get back on the Microsoft PowerPoint web site. I've been trying all day today. Could you possible post you answer here?
    Thank you so much.

    Re: Determine transition used on completed present

    Sure. Here's a link to my response. http://www.microsoft.com/office/community/...59a6&sloc=en-us Dunno if it will work for you or not, though, so...

    If you open the taskpane and choose Slide Design - Animation Schemes at the
    top of the taskpane, you'll see a list of possible schemes. If you've used
    one in the presentation, it will be selected (highlighted, kind of) in the
    list in the taskpane.

    The same on the Slide Transition task pane -- if you've used a transition,
    it will be selected in the list in the taskpane. If you haven't applied a
    transition, "no transition" will be selected in the list in the taskpane.

    Thank you for the link AND for the information. I understand what I'm looking for now. It seems simple once you have explained it. Thank you again.
    I find Woody's Lounge much easier to negoiate than the other newsgroup.

    Thanks again. I really appreciate being able to ask these questions and receiving prompt responses and great solutions.
