Adding More Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Adding More Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
Once you have made Guides visible on your PowerPoint slides, they show up in the same position on all other slides within the presentation. You'll find that only two Guides, one horizontal and one vertical Guide are visible at first, and these two Guides intersect at the center of the slide. Most of the time, this might work for you, but you can actually add more Guides since these can help in positioning slide objects better across successive slides.

Animation Speed in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Animation Speed in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it

After you add an animation to a selected slide object, you typically set an animation event. Another animation property you can set thereafter is the speed of the animation. Every animation you add within PowerPoint 2016 has a fixed, default speed. This speed essentially is a duration shown in seconds or part thereof and differs from animation to animation. For example, the default duration of a Fade animation is half a second (00.50) whereas for the Wheel animation, it is two seconds (02.00).

Animation Events in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it

Once you add an animation to any slide object, you can play the animation in Slide Show view by clicking your mouse cursor or pressing the spacebar on your keyboard. Another option is to use a button on a presentation remote. Each of these options advances one animation at a time, or may even take you to the subsequent slide. However, if you add that many animations to any slide, you probably want your animations to be automatically sequenced and play one after the other without a click, and that's exactly where PowerPoint's animation events can help.

Exit Animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it

Exit animation effects determine how animated slide objects leave the Slide Area. For example, a slide object can fade or fly out the screen area, or use any of the many other Exit animation effects available within PowerPoint. Typical Exit Effect animations include Disappear, in which an object just vanishes or Float Down, in which slide object mimics the setting sun. You can also apply Exit Effects to text objects so that words Spiral out of the slide. There are plenty of Exit Effect animations that PowerPoint provides. However, make sure you use animation sparingly to emphasize rather than to distract.

Entrance Animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
Among several types of animations that PowerPoint 2016 provides, Entrance effects are probably the most popular. By applying Entrance animation effects, you can make your slide objects appear on the slide almost magically! You make them appear in the fraction of a second, or get them to fly in from any direction. You can also do a zoom in, or even better, just make it subtle with a simple fade in. Whichever Entrance animation effect you choose, make sure to go for something that is in sync with the subject of your presentation. Most of the time, Appear, Fade, or Wipe effects work the best.

Open and Closed Motion Paths in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Open and Closed Motion Paths in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it

Motion paths are paths (or lines) through which slide objects animate.

A circle is a good example of a closed path, whereas an arc is an open path. So, how is the concept of open and closed paths relevant to Motion Path animations in PowerPoint?

Change Slide Layout in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Change Slide Layout in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
A PowerPoint presentation comprises a bunch of slides and we like to think of these slides as akin to a blank canvas. You add content to the slides in almost the same way as you use brushes to create strokes of paint to color a canvas. However unlike a canvas, in PowerPoint, you don't have a non-structured freedom, and this can be good in many ways. Primarily, PowerPoint categorizes each slide type into one of its prescribed layouts.

Motion Path Animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Motion Path Animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
The three basic animation types in PowerPoint: entrance, emphasis, and exit animations are something we have already explored. The fourth animation type is called Motion Path animations, and this is something more advanced in nature than the basic animation types explored so far. Motion Path animations determine the route (path) and the direction in which the animated slide object moves across or around on the slide. For example, you can move a slide object up, down, right, or left, on a preset or created motion path, or possibly anywhere you want.

Reorder Animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Reorder Animations in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it

By default, animation effects are numbered in the order in which they are applied to slide objects. You might need to reorder your animations mainly because you may have more than one animated object on a slide, and re-sequencing of animations as they happen in relation to each other may provide a better result. Or you may just want some animations to happen before other animations. Also, there are logical reasons to reorder animations since typically entrance and exit animations need to be the first and last animations for any slide object. PowerPoint's Reorder option for animations lets you play with their sequencing.

Emphasis animation effects determine how the slide object calls attention to itself while it is on-the-slide. Entrance and Exit effect animations allow a slide object to enter or exit the Slide Area, whereas slide objects with Emphasis Effect animations are already there on the slide area before they start animating, and will be there even after they have finished animating.

Adding animation to your slide objects is easy, but needs prior thought. It’s best to first decide what type of animation works best for a particular slide object.

In this tutorial, let us get started with showing you how many types of animations are available within PowerPoint 2016.
