Total Animations Count

Published Fri, Apr 14 2006 22:05

So you have numerous animations on your slide. Aren't you interested to know the total number of animations you have added onto the slide? Here's a quick way you can use to check it out.

For PowerPoint 2000 and below, the animation order will show you the total. But how about PowerPoint 2002/XP and 2003?

First, open up the Custom Animation task pane. To do so, click Slide Show > Custom Animation. You will probably see animations with "On click", "With previous", "After previous", and triggered animations. Now, click on the first animation that you have added. Hold down the Shift key on your keyboard. Next, press the End key. This allows you to highlight all the animations at one go. Hover over the "Start: " setting. Set the "Start :" to "On Click". After changing the setting, scroll to the bottom and take a look at the number stated on the last effect. This will be your total number of animations on a slide. To undo, simply hold down Ctrl key and press Z. Alternately, click Edit > Undo.

Simple, isn't it ;-)
