Using Exclamation Named Objects with Morph in PowerPoint

April 11, 2022

So, how does the Morph transition effect in PowerPoint work? You duplicate a slide and then modify the existing slide objects so that a tween effect is created based on the differences between two or more slides. You can also create your own shapes to Morph rather than use PowerPoint's pre-built shapes. However, what if you take two completely different slides and apply the Morph transition effect? The results will be unpredictable, because although PowerPoint does have artificial intelligence, it still cannot define which objects should morph from the first slide to the second slide. To overcome this problem, PowerPoint allows you to use exclamation-named objects in your slides.

Morph between two disparate slide objects by using named objects with exclamations added.

What's more, highlighting text is as simple as dragging and drawing. You can highlight a single block of text, also known as contiguous text. You can also highlight non-contiguous text, or text sections that are not next to each other.

Presentation Design and Instagram

As challenging as it is to design slides as illustrations for presentations and, more recently, for virtual presentations, the design challenge is even greater for Instagram where viewers see graphic images as single screens without the benefit of a presenter’s narrative.
