PPT2000: Play Settings Disabled When Multiple OLE Objects Selected

ID: Q197936

The information in this article applies to:


When you select multiple OLE objects in the Animation Order box in the Custom Animation dialog box, all of the options on the Play Settings tab become unavailable (dimmed). In contrast, you can select multiple objects and then apply the settings on the Timing tab.


PowerPoint does not allow you to modify settings for multiple OLE objects. You can only modify the settings for one object at a time.


Select one object at a time and then select the options you want from the Play Settings tab.


For more information about applying custom animation, click Contents And Index on the Help menu, click the Index tab in PowerPoint Help, type the following text

and then double-click "creating animated slides" to go to the "Create animated slides" topic. If you are unable to find the information you need, ask the Office Assistant.
