Animated bullet items in PowerPoint 2007

by Sam C. Chan, originally created for November 2009


Problem:  Using multiple static slides to manually and progressively populate each individual bullet item is unsound. It makes the file needlessly bulky. Worse, the slightest change would require enormous efforts to duplicate/coordinate across scattered slides.

Solution:  Create a single slide with all bullets. Invoke the new animated bullet feature. At each mouse click (or after a delay), a bullet item is displayed. Such dynamic unveiling is intelligently managed by the program. Reorganizing, addition and removal of items become simple and reliable!
