PPT2000: Animations Don't Dim With Automatic Timings

ID: Q195103

The information in this article applies to:


Animated items in your PowerPoint presentation do not dim after they animate when the timing for that item is set to automatic. This problem can affect any of the following items in your presentation:


This process is by design. When you set animations to automatic, the Dim Effect needs a mouse click to be initiated. If a mouse-click is not initiated, the Dim Effect will not occur.


If you change the animation timings for your animated items to a mouse click and change the slide transition for that slide to automatic the bullets will dim correctly, but all other animation timings will be altered slightly.

NOTE: When setting a slide transition to automatic, all animation timings within that slide are given equal time intervals.
