    Animation settings - is there a quicker way? (2003)

    In good old PPT 97 on which I learnt how to do presentations, I could, from one dialog box, set up that I wanted bullet points to 'appear' rather than, well, appear in some other fashion, and set that I wanted them to appear by say 2nd level paragraphs. Now I seem to have to do it a longer way round. I can right click the bullet points and choose the 'custom animation' option which gives me the task pane on the right. Then I can click the 'Add effect' button, and choose 'appear'. Then I can right click on the list of bullet points in the task pane and choose 'effect options'. Then I can selec the 'text animation' tab and finally choose 'by 2nd level paragraphs'.

    Am I fooling myself that the old way was quicker? Is there some quicker route to this that I haven't found?

    Ian (nice hat BTW),

    I'm a big fan of the old ppt 97 animation menu too.

    In powerpoint 2003, go to your slide

    slideshow menu > animation schemes > wipe (or another choice) > done (it defaults to 1st level bullet point clicks)

    xmas cheers

    Thanks. But if I want it to put the points up by second level paras, that is sub bullets come up separately, I can't seem to do that from here.

    Unfortunately powerpoint only (on mouse clicks) the 1st level.
    So you're left with (right click > custom animation) select the 'block of sub points' in the custom animation window, then choose "on mouse click"
