"Mastering the PowerPoint 2007 Slide Transitions Feature"


PowerPoint 2007 Slide Transitions are special effects you can add to a PowerPoint slide to determine how one slides moves to the next. The PowerPoint 2007 offers variety of transitions from one slide to another.

Normally, the presenter must click the mouse to move to the next slide. However, if you are preparing a self-running presentation, automatic transitions are necessity.


To assign an automatic transition to a slide

  • View or select the slide in Normal or Slide Sorter view.
  • On the Animations tab, in the Transition to This Slide group, check the Automatically After: check box.
  • In the Automatically After: text box, type a transition time, in seconds, to replace the default time.

  • To apply this setting to all slides in the presentation, click Apply to All icon.

Note: You can leave the On Mouse Click check box selected, even if you choose automatic transitions because there may be times when you want to manually advance to the next slide before the automatic transition time has elapsed.


To add transition to a slide

  • Select and display the slide or slides that you want to apply transition.
  • On the Animations tab, in the Transition to This Slide group, click the one that you want, or click No Transition to turn off any existing transition effect.
  • You also can click on the More button to see gallery of effects.

  • You can click the Transition Sound: drop-down list and select a transition sound.
- No Sound: Does not assign a sound to the transition.
- Stop Previous Sound: Stops any sound that is already playing. This usually applies where the previous sound was very long and was not finished when you moved on to the next slide.
- Other Sound: Opens a dialog box from which you can select another sound file stored on your system.
- Loop Until Next Sound: An on/off toggle that sets whatever sound you select to loop continuously either until another sound is triggered or until a slide appears that has Stop Previous Sound set for its transition.

  • Open the Transition Speed: drop-down list and select a transition speed.
  • Click Apply to All to make the same transition apply to all slides in the presentation, and not just the selected slides.
