I am trying to get a shape to move off screen then, after that event is
complete, I want PPT to load the next slide. Can this be done in PPT?

Which version of PowerPoint are you using? You will want to do two
separate things. First, you want to use Custom Animation (available in
the Slide Show menu) to move the shape off the slide (in PPT 2002 and
2003, this can be done with an exit animation). Then you will want to set
a slide transition (also in the Slide Show menu) to move to the next
slide automatically.

Yes, John.

On the slide with the exit animation, select Slide Show > Slide
Transition to open the Taskpane. Near the bottom, under Advance slide,
check the option for Automatically after... (you can set a delay here
if you wish)

Select Slide Show > Set Up Show and under Advance Slides, check the
option for Use timings, if present.

Best wishes,

Julie

I am using PPT 2003 with Windows 2000. Here's the scenario:

At the last bullet point of a slide, I had an arrow appear (then repeatedly
fade) at the buttom of the slide to indcate that the next click will take the
ppt to the next slide. However, as pure fluff, I want to have the a few
boxes move off the screen than have PPT load the next slde after the
animation is complete.

I do have the exit animation set up to move the rectangle & line off the
screen, but I don't see where in Slide Transistion the "Advance to next
Slide" setting. I know I am missing if its there.

Thanks for the info. Can you help furth?

When you choose Slide Tranistion, look down toward the bottom of the
dialog box that comes up on the right side of your screen. Look for the
words "Advance slide." Under that, you will want to check the box for
"Automatically after" and set a time (which could be 0 seconds since you
want it to happen right after your animation).

Julie, does not seem to work (for me). I am using PPT 2003 and Win2000.

Here's the scenario I am trying to get to work:

At the last bullet point of a slide (I am clicking to disply them one at a
time), I have an arrow appear at the buttom of the slide (then repeatedly
fade as I discuss the last point) to indcate that the next click will take
the ppt to the next slide. However, as pure fluff, I want to have the a few
boxes and other elements fly off the screen than have PPT load the next slde
immediately after the animation is complete (no more clicking needed). :)

I do have the exit animation set up to have the rectangle & line fly off the
screen, but when I set Slide Transistion's "Advance to next Slide" setting
with or without a time, all animation occur one after the other (not waiting
for my 'On-Click' command). I know I am missing if it's there.

Thanks for the info. Can you help further?

Duplicate your slide. Remove the exit transitions from the first slide
- leaving all of the bullet animations, and the repeatedly fading arrow
on this first slide. Advance slide: On mouse click.

On duplicate slide: remove the bullet animations and the arrow repeat
animation. The only animations you'll have in the list are the exit
transitions. Start>after previous.

Change the Slide Transition to Advance slide automatically after x
seconds.

Slide Show>Set Up Show: Advance slides using timings, if present.

Let me know if this works for you. (sorry for the delay in replying)

Julie, THANK YOU! This is exactly what I wanted.

It could be very laborous to manage if I wanted this
"animate-then-transition" effect for all slides in a presentation. :-(
Also, with the type of on-screen then off-screen animation, of which I use a
lot, would mean ensuring that the duplicate slide is exactly like to FINAL
state of the previous slide or else it looks like a wierd computer clich.

It is a teriffic work around though and I am sure that I will use it in most
presentations. Thanks again!

Thanks for the explanation. It was very helpful. I have a follow-up question.
I would need to duplicate a slide to get this automatic transition after the last clicked animation but I can´t just copy the slide because the last animation zooms and moves the content. I would need a copy of the slide as it is after the last animation. Is that possible?
TIA

Hi again,
I found the answer after asking. (Screen dump or using Motion Path Tool).
Sorry for that.
