A quiz question has Custom Show answers in PowerPoint



When you add animation to any slide object, and set the animation event for it to occur, the next thing to do is set the speed of the animation.

There are five speed presets available in PowerPoint 2007, 2003, and 2002 for Windows:

  1. Very Slow: Plays for 5 seconds.
  2. Slow: Plays for 3 seconds.
  3. Medium: Plays for 2 seconds.
  4. Fast: Plays for 1 second.
  5. Very Fast: Plays for 0.5 second.

Speeds Other than 5 Presets

If you want to change the timing or speed of any animation beyond these available presets, you do that by using the Advanced Timeline as explained in our Control Animation Timings using the Advanced Timeline in PowerPoint 2007 for Windows tutorial.

Follow these steps to change the animation speed for any animation in PowerPoint 2007, 2003, and 2002 for Windows:

  1. Select the object that has an animation applied to it. For more information on adding animation, refer to our Adding an Animation tutorial.
  2. Now, make sure that the Custom Animation Task Pane is visible, as shown in Figure 1, below. If this Task Pane is not visible, you won't be able to see or select any animations. To make this pane visible, follow the steps for your version of PowerPoint, as detailed next.
  3. For PowerPoint 2007 users, make sure that the shape is still selected, then activate the Animations tab of the Ribbon. Next, click the Custom Animation button to bring up a Task Pane of the same name that you can see in Figure 1. Remember, this is a toggle option: click once to show the Custom Animation Task Pane, and click again to hide it!
  4. Users of earlier PowerPoint versions (PowerPoint 2003 and 2002) can again make sure that the shape is selected. Then they should choose the Slide Show | Custom Animation option to access a similar Task Pane.
