Use mouse-over action settings - highlights and sounds - in PowerPoint® 97/2000 to show that an object is a hyperlink. Text hyperlinks are made obvious by an underline, but object hyperlinks, such as pictures and shapes, might need special emphasis. For example, when you apply a mouse-over highlight to an object, it flashes briefly and changes color when you point to it, indicating that it's a link.
To apply mouse-over action settings
You can apply action settings such as sounds to text hyperlinks, but the hyperlink must be a type of object - such as a drawing object, WordArt object, or picture - to also display a highlight.
- Select the object hyperlink that you want to apply settings to.
- On the Slide Show menu, click Action Settings, and then click the Mouse Over tab.
- To apply a highlight to the object, select the Highlight when mouse over check box.
- To apply a sound to the object, select the Play sound check box, and then select a sound.
- Click OK.
Note In PowerPoint 97, to apply a mouse-over highlight to an object, you must first apply a sound.
