In PowerPoint, how do you make points come up individually?

Asked by buckyboy28 (4943points) April 21st, 2011

I am working on a PowerPoint presentation, and I can’t figure out how to make points come up individually on my click. They all come up as one bunch. I’m sure it’s a simple fix, I just can’t figure it out.

I am using PowerPoint 2007.

Look at your animations tab.

@Rarebear I tried messing with animations, and all it did was make the points come up individually, but by themselves (not on my click).

I don’t have PowerPoint on this computer and I am sure there is probably a better way. But if you just need to get it done now you could just make each one its own slide. So make a slide with the first bullet point. Duplicate that slide and then add the next bullet point. And so on. Just set the transition between them to “None”.

It seems hackish but it should work if you are in a bind.

Hm. I’m at home now, but when I get back to work tomorrow, I have Powerpoint 2007 installed on that machine and I’ll check. In 2010 it’s a lot easier. If you don’t have a solution by tomorrow I’ll get it for you.

With animations, you can change the trigger that causes a point to appear. I use the 2007 version, and once you select the point that you want to animate, you click “add effect” on the custom animation side bar. You then click on the type of effect, “entrance,” and select a specific effect. Under where it says “Modify: (type of effect),” there is a drop down box next to the word “Start”. This controls what triggers the animation. Select “on click”. This should give you what you want.

Try putting them all into different textboxes. Then, you’ll have an account of each bullet, and you can specialize them individually.

@PhiNotPi has it correct. That’s what I remember.
