Animations I: Preset and custom animation

Effect Options command shown on the drop-down menu of collapsed list items

Callout 1 Effect options include animating by word or letter, dimming text, and adding sound.
Callout 2 Commands for how to start an effect appear here as well as at the top of the task pane.

In the Custom Animation task pane, each effect in the effects list expands into a drop-down menu with more commands and options.

  • Chief for our concerns here is the Effect Options command on the menu. Effect options let you fine-tune and embellish effects.
  • But note also: All the Start commands (On Click, and so on) appear again here for easy access.

The timing options on this menu are discussed in another course, Animations III: Timing
