Slide Transition

Reader rating: 3 out of 10


Your presentation can look more professional when you use Slide Transitions.  It will also let the audience know when you move on to the next slide.  Instead of just having the next slide display, use a Slide Transition.

Slide Transition

1.  Move to the slide you want to add the transition to.

2.  Click the Slide Show menu and click Slide Transition... from the menu that appears.  

3.  Figure 1.1 will be displayed.

Figure 1.1

4.  (Refer to Figure 1.1)  From the drop-down menu which currently says "No Transition", select the transition type you want to use.

5.  From the three radio buttons (below the drop-down menu), select the speed of the transition.

Tip: The image (which toggles between a key and a dog) will display what the slide transition will look like on the slide.

6.  In the Advance area of Figure 1.1, check the correct box for when you want the slide transition to happen.

7.  In the Sound drop-down menu, select the sound, if any, to hear during the transition.

8.  Click the Apply button.

Tip: Click the Apply to All button to apply the current slide transition selection to all the slides in the presentation.

Tip: If you select Random from the Transition Selection drop-down menu and click Apply to All, you won't need to apply a transition to each slide.  The Random effect will show a different transition for each slide.  This is helpful when you have many slides in your presentation and you don't want to apply a transition to each one manually.
