    Animation star icons (PowerPoint 2003/SP2)

    Somewhere in the vast Internet, I recall seeing a graphic displaying each of the Custom Animation star icons with an explanation of what the various symbols meant. I'm teaching an advanced PowerPoint class and would like to share that explanation with my students...but I can't find it.

    Does anyone know where I can find such an explanation?

    Thanks!

    The only thing I can find is on Microsoft's help site. It describes the four main effects, but not the individual options under each effect.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by SammyB on 28-Oct-06 13:12. added sample presentation)</P>The closest I could find is the Echo's comparison chart http://www.echosvoice.com/gotchas.htm, but it is only XP and you would have to add a column of icons. It would be a nice reference: when you make it, post it here! <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>. --Sam

    Other nice related pages I found:

    Thanks for the good suggestions! I enjoyed looking at all of them.
    And, if I ever find the explanation of the different Animation icons that I'm looking for, I will definitely post it to share with you-all.

    Great! I also looked through about 60 PP books and none of them had any useful charts either. --Sam
