Presentation Management 02: What’s Wrong With PowerPoint (As If You Didn’t Know Already)



Exit Effects determine how the animated slide object exits from the Slide Area. For example, a slide object can fade or fly out the screen area—or use any of the many other Exit Effects available within PowerPoint. Typical Exit Effect animations are Disappear, in which an object just vanishes, or Float Down, in which a slide object mimics the setting sun. You can also apply Exit Effects to text objects so that words Spiral out of the slide. There are plenty of Exit Effect animations that PowerPoint provides. However, make sure you use animation sparingly to emphasize rather than to distract.

The Add Animation drop-down gallery on the Animations tab of the Ribbon includes some of the Exit animations as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1, below.

If you want to explore more Exit Effect animations, select the More Exit Effects option within the Add Animation drop-down gallery, as shown highlighted in blue within Figure 1, above. Doing so opens the Add Exit Effect dialog box, as shown towards left in Figure 2, below.

Within the Add Exit Effect dialog box you can see the Exit Effects divided into 4 categories:

  1. Basic
  2. Subtle
  3. Moderate
  4. Exciting

If you can't see Exciting category, just scroll down, as shown highlighted in red towards right within Figure 2, above.

These category names represent how much attention-seeking each of these available effects are:

  1. Effects in the Basic category are simple animations such as Wipe that causes a slide object to wipe out of the Slide Area. Animation effects in the Basic category are important if you need to show technical procedures in your slides.
  2. Subtle effects are simpler effects that fade, contract, or zoom slide objects and send them off the slide. A classic example is the Fade animation that fades out an object until it disappears.
  3. Moderate effects do ask for some extra attention by floating, shrinking, or spinning off the slide.
  4. Finally, effects in the Exciting category just shout for attention.

As far as possible, you should use something simple such as a Fade, a Disappear, or a Wipe effect. These are all from either the Basic or Subtle categories.

The Exit animation effects available within the Add Exit Effect dialog box entirely depend upon the slide object you have selected. Figure 2, above shows the Add Exit Effect dialog box when a shape is selected. Here, we selected a Rectangle for applying animation. Compare the Exciting effects within the Add Exit Effect dialog towards right in Figure 2 above, with the one in Figure 3, below, where we summoned the same dialog box for applying animation to a text box.

The Exciting category, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 3, contains three extra Exit Effects: Drop, Flip, and Whip effects. These were grayed out in the Add Exit Effect dialog box, as shown highlighted in red towards right within Figure 2, previously on this page. These three Exit Effects work only with text, not with shapes.

The embedded sample presentation below shows all the Exit animation effects available in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows.

The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations: one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!
