How to Animate a Table
As a whole: Select the table and apply any custom animation.
By parts (rows or columns):
Method 1: (Recommended): Insert or create the table. With the whole
table selected, from the Drawing bar, select | . Each cell is now a drawing object. Select the cells that you
want to appear together and group them (Draw | Group). Apply your
animations to each grouped object. (Be careful as you work to not drag
Method 2: Create a separate table for each
row (or column) and apply custom animation to each one. (Yes, it is awkward!)
How to create separate tables for each row/column:
- Turn off AutoLayout.
Or, undo AutoLayout each time you create a table.
- Create the
full table on a separate slide (which you will delete when you are done) or
in Word with the size cells that you want.
- Copy row (or column).
- Paste onto your slide as a separate table.
(Will be centered.)
- Drag into position.
- Repeat for each row (or column).
- Arrange the tables on the slide so that the cell borders line up.
- Select all the tables.
- Apply a Custom Animation effect.
- Delete the temporary slide, if you used one.
- Turn AutoLayout back on, if you wish.
How to Animate Chart
As a whole: Apply animation scheme to slide or select chart and
apply a custom animation.
By parts (series or categories):
- Apply a custom animation.
- Open the Effects Options dialog to the Chart Animation tab.
- Select from the Group chart list.
(Only certain animation will offer choices here, like Fade, Appear, Box,
or Random Bars, that do not involve moving the object
around on the slide)
Reveal by series
If you start applying custom animations on top of animation schemes (or
just lots of custom animations), you may find some glitches in your Slide
Show. The combinations do not always play well together.
Problem: Some effects do not show at all, but to advance the slides you have to click as
though the effects were there!
Problem: Some effects reveal again what was already revealed.
Solution: Change the order of animations in the Custom Animation
pane or delete some of them.
Problem: A custom animation on a certain slide does not work well
with the animation applied by the slide's master. The animations from the
master are grayed out in the Custom Animation pane and cannot be deleted or
edited there. Changing the animation on the master will change it for all
slides, which is not what you want!
Solution: Do not apply an animation scheme to the master. Apply an
animation scheme to selected slides. For slides that you want to be different, apply a
different scheme or Remove the scheme and apply custom animations.
Solution: Create a new master without the
animation. Apply this new master to the selected slide - not to all
of the slides.
