To remove animation effects from slide objects 1. Do either of the following in the Animation Pane : ● ● To remove one animation, right-click the animation, and then click Remove . ● ● To remove all animations, click any animation, press Ctrl+A to select all the animations, and then press Delete . Customize animation effects Many presentations don’t require much in the way of animation, and you might find that transitions and ready-made animation effects will meet all your animation needs. However, for those occasions when you want a presentation with pizzazz, you can customize the animation effects.

TIP  Animations can be useful for self-running presentations, where there is no presenter to lead the audience from one concept to another.

After you apply an animation effect, you can fine-tune its action in the following ways:

■ ■ Specify the direction, shape, or sequence of the animation. (The options vary depending on the type of animation you apply.) ■ ■ Specify what action will trigger the animation. For example, you can specify that clicking a different object on the slide will animate the selected object.
