Types of Animation in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Adding animation to your slide objects is easy, but needs prior thought. It’s best to first decide what type of animation works best for a particular slide object. The type of animation used for any object is paramount because it can make the animated end-results viable, or relegate it to a distraction. In this tutorial, let us get started with showing you how many types of animations are available within PowerPoint 2016. When we say "many types," we do not mean the animation effects themselves, but the categories in which these Animation effects are divided.

Rulers in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

When working with multiple slide objects, you should have a visual cue about where you are placing slide objects.
