Animation Guidelines

Animation Guidelines for PowerPoint

Animation is movement, and nothing captures attention of the human eye like a "little" movement. More movement does not get more attention; in fact too much animation results in distraction. Even if you decide to use just a wee bit of animation, that can still be an approach that will go astray if your animation is not relevant to your slide content. Also animation needs to be part of your story. Something that you plan from the moment you develop your slide content, and not something that you add at the last moment to bring in some pizzazz! Clearly there are a few guidelines that you must be aware of before using any animation in your slides. Here are some thoughts to get you started.

Edit Points for Shapes

Edit Points for Shapes in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

When a shape is inserted into a PowerPoint slide, its default appearance is related to the points that it contains. Alter the points, and you can change the original shape to anything you want. PowerPoint's native Edit Points tool makes it almost a drawing program that provides you the option to play with vertexes (points), handles, etc. This is very similar to what you would do in Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW or another drawing program. By using the Edit Points tool, you can change a rectangle to a rhombus, or even edit a curved or freeform line differently.

Text Alignment

Text Alignment in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Text is an important element in your PowerPoint slides, and most of the time, text alignment is taken care by the defaults set in your presentation template. You type or paste some text in a placeholder, and the text may align left, right, or even center, based upon the choices made in the template or Theme of the presentation. However, there are times when you want to make alignment choices, not just for text in placeholders, but also for text in text boxes, shapes, charts, tables, and anywhere else.
