Effect options dialog box with list choices for animating by line, word, or letter

Text options for the Ease In effect. To make the text appear word by word instead of paragraph by paragraph, click By word.

When you click Effect Options, a dialog box opens with choices for the specific effect. So, for an Ease In entrance effect for a bulleted list, you could refine the text entrance from All at once (line by line) to either of the following:

  • By word: each line enters word by word.
  • By letter: each line enters letter by letter; this works better for titles than for whole lists.
