Work in the PowerPoint user interface
If differences between your display settings and ours cause a button to appear differently on your screen than it does in this book, you can easily adapt the steps to locate the command. First click the specified tab, and then locate the specified group. If a group has been collapsed into a group list or under a group button, click the list or button to display the group’s com- mands. If you can’t immediately identify the button you want, point to likely
candidates to display their names in ScreenTips. Multistep procedural instructions use this format: 1. Display the presentation in Normal view.
2. Select the animated object or objects that you want to modify. 3. On the Animations tab, in the Timing group, click the Start arrow to display the list of start timing options. 4. In the Start list, click After Previous . On subsequent instances of instructions that require you to follow the same process, the instructions might be simplified in this format because the work- ing location has already been established: 1. In Normal view, select the animated objects that you want to modify. 2. On the Animations tab, in the Start list, click After Previous . The instructions in this book assume that you’re interacting with on-screen elements on your computer by clicking (with a mouse, touchpad, or other hardware device). If you’re using a different method—for example, if your computer has a touchscreen interface and you’re tapping the screen (with your finger or a stylus)—substitute the applicable tapping action when you interact with a user interface element. Instructions in this book refer to user interface elements that you click or tap on the screen as buttons , and to physical buttons that you press on a key- board as keys , to conform to the standard terminology used in documenta- tion for these products. When the instructions tell you to enter information, you can do so by typing on a connected external keyboard, tapping an on-screen keyboard, or even speaking aloud, depending on your computer setup and your personal preferences.
