The Final Slide for PowerPoint Presentation Number Three
The final slide in our third PowerPoint Presentation is a Bulleted list with some animation.
You have already added a bulleted list in a previous presentation. But insert a new slide into your presentation by clicking Insert > New Slide from the PowerPoint menu bar. From the New Slide dialogue box, select Bulleted List from the dialogue box (PowerPoint 2000 users):
On the Task Pane in PowerPoint 2003, the bulleted list is the first on the second row, and looks the same as in the image above.
Add the following Title to your new slide:
Now click inside the bulleted list area, and enter the first bullet item:
Managers are spending too much on the Internet
Hit the enter key on your keyboard and the slide will look like this:
The font is a bit too big here, so highlight the line. Change the font to Arial, and the size to 24 points. The text will then fit on one line:
Position the cursor to the end of the line, and hit the enter key on your keyboard. This will give you the second bullet:
Now type the following:
Managers are spending too much time on breaks
Do the same for the third bullet, only type this;
Too many meetings!
And for the final bullet item, type this:
Warning! Staff taking calls are not happy
Your final list should then look like ours below:
The text area is too big, in the image above. To resize it, you can hold your left mouse button down on any of the white squares, and then drag a border to a new size. Hold your left mouse button down on a shaded area of the border and you can reposition your text area. The slide will then look like this:
Finally, we'll add some bullet animations.
So that the bullet don't appear all at once, you can add a bit of suspense to the last slide by making each bullet item appear on the click of a mouse. For this, you need a Custom Animation.
Click anywhere inside of your bulleted list. Then click Slide Show from the PowerPoint menu bar at the top. From the Slide Show menu, select Custom Animation.
You've already learned how to do a Custom Animation, so we won't go through it again. But the effect to add is Appear. If you're unsure, go back a few pages to the Custom Animation sections.
When you're happy with your slide, press F5 on your keyboard and run
your PowerPoint presentation.
If you find that some slides are out of sequence, you can easily sort them. We'll do that in the last lesson of this section.
