I answered this yesterday! What is everybody taking exams on old versions
of PowerPoint these days? A "build" is an "animation" Animate an object
onto a slide and you just did a "build". Then tell your Instructor that the
term "build" went out before the wall fell down!

Bill,

I think that was the instructor. We move very slowly in education,
especially when we are forced to teach to the test.

A build is a powerpoint slide in which a series of items,
usually text lines are displayed one element at a time
either by clicking on the mouse to bring up the next line
or automatically by a time delay. Ever watch David
Letterman do a top 10 list? You put all 10 items on the
list but reveal them by adding or "building" the list one
by one until all 10 are on the screen. Most presenters use
bullet points to build the list or else it would get to
wordy.

I thought Build was the changing( update) of the version of Powerpoint
within the same Version???

Yup. Lotsa words have different meanings, depending on who you're talking to.

To a carpenter, "Build" is what s/he does for a living.

To most of us, "Bill'd" is what we get for installing Windows. ;-)
