advance slide

G&GSolutions

I have a presentation where i use different custom animations. All the custom
animations work fine but then when I am done with the animations on the
slide, I want the slide to automatically move on to the next slide (advance
slide) - it doesn't do anything - just waits for me to click.

Please let me know what I could try different to make this work.

Note:
I have no audio files attached with the presentation.

Open your presentation in Edit mode ( NEW ).
Slide panel ( left ), click one of the slides, anyone > press Ctrl and HOLD
press A key > all the slides are now ' selected '> Animations tab >
Automatically after. Click the top pointer. Each click = 1 second. > Slide
Show tab > Set up slide show > under Advance slides, select Using timings.

Thank you for the prompt reply. I tried that out - all the slides are working
automatically - but then I want it to still follow the custom animation
within a slide so that I have time to explain the slides.

For example, I have custom animation where I want to click the mouse after
I'm done explaining/talking & only then show the next part of the same slide.

How could I do this?

Thanks

I have only about 6 weeks of PowerPoint experience.
I know we can set different timing on each slide via Slide Show tab >
Rehearse Timings, but I don't know if we can " mix & match " between manual
and auto slide change.
I am bowing out. Let the real pro teach you.

Wait. I know.
When you come to the slide where you need time to explain, right click. When
done explaining, left click, and it will resume as normal.

If I understand your questions correctly, then what you're trying to do is
change your slide transitions to move from slide to slide (versus custom
animations which animate a graphic or text box within a slide). If you have
custom animations that are triggered by a mouse click, then I suggest you
select "No Transition" under SLIDE SHOW >> SLIDE TRANSITION >> Apply to
selected slides. And click the APPLY TO ALL SLIDES button. Then create a
NEXT SLIDE action button so you're assured you won't accidentally advance
your slides with an extra click of the mouse. If you place this on your
master slide, you only have to do it once. (PPT 2003)

If your custom animations are not triggered by a mouse click, then you can
also go to the same menu above and select ADVANCE SLIDE >> ON MOUSE CLICK for
those slides you want to manually advance as opposed to having them
automatically transition (mix and match).

Sure! Just follow directions below to manually advance (transition) with a
mouse click.

I tried to do it. But then I wasn't able to get what I was expecting.

Here is what is happening: It plays the slide 1 & pauses (slide 1 has custom
animation which requires me to click once I'm done with the talking) & then
when it plays the rest of the slide - it stops once slide 1 is over. It
doesn't go to slide 2 automatically (I want it to go to slide 2
automatically).

In slide two also I want it to go ahead & play the first half & then pause
for a click (while I am done talking) & then play the rest of slide 2 & then
move to the 3rd slide automatically.

Hope this explains little bit more of what I'm trying to do.

Thanks

Hi G&G,

There is no "advance to next slide" animation, the entire slide can advance
once the animations are complete, or the slide will wait to advance.

However, as I'm sure you know, the audience can not tell the difference
between things that look identical, so why do you need it to be exactly
slides 1, 2, & 3? So it doesn't get too confusing, let's call your slides A
B & C, and my slides 1, 2, 3, 4 and such. There is so much more of the
world outside the box.

Slide 1 => The first part of A runs until there is a pause (manual advance)
Slide 2 => The second part, picks up from there (identical slide)
and runs until done (auto advance to next slide)
Slide 3 => The first part of B runs until there is a pause
.... and so on.
