Items are listed in the order in which they are added, and include icons that indicate timing in relation to other animation events.), top to bottom, in the order you apply them. If you add diagram effect options, they will appear in a collapsed list under the effect that you applied to the chart. The animated items are noted on the slide by a non-printing numbered tag that correlates to the effects in the list. This tag appears only in normal view with the Custom Animation task pane displayed.
