Animations I: Preset and custom animation

Slide Show menu showing Animation Schemes command, and the list of schemes that it displays

Applying an animation scheme involves little more than choosing a menu command and selecting a scheme from a list.

This lesson discusses the easiest way to add animations, which is to use a preset, or readymade, animation scheme. A scheme is a polished sequence of effects that you can apply to several slides or your whole show with just a couple of mouse clicks. It's a big time-saver and makes for quick results.

A scheme also gives you consistency because the same effects are used on every slide. And, a scheme isn't set in stone; it's easy to remove, replace, or customize.
