This guide is part of the Animate PowerPoint 2007 series

Guides in this series:

Make: Microsoft

Model / Product: PowerPoint

Version: 2007

Objective / Info: Create a shape of a star then animate the star.

Open PowerPoint by clicking your desktop or start menu icon.

Click the "Insert" tab from the menu. Then click "Shapes" from the sub menu.
You should see long list of shapes to choose from. For this guide we will use the star shape.

After making your selection the list should disappear and you should see a cross-hair instead of your usual mouse pointer
Left click and drag the shape onto the slide.

  Note : The fill color and outline have been changed. The default color is blue.

While the star shape is select. Click on the "Animations" tab.

Select the animate option from the menu.
Select the "Custom Animation" option from the menu.
OR you can simply select the "Custom Animation" button.

A new menu should appear on the right column.
Click "Add Effect" button.

Select "Motion Paths" from the sub menu.

In this example, we are animating a shooting start. So select "Diagonal Up Right"

  Note : If "Auto Preview" is selected in the lower right hand corner, then you should see a preview of the animation after selecting it..

The preview shows a brief animation that works but doesn't cover the entire slide. If you want the animation to cover the entire slide click on the red end point of the dotted line and drag it to the top upper right hand corner of the slide.
When you reach just inside the corner of the slide, release the cursor.
If you were successful you slide should look like this.
Press the "Play" button in the lower right hand corner to see a preview or the animation.
  Note : Press the "Slide Show" button or the "F5" key to see a full screen preview. Click your mouse to start the animation.

If you are satisfied with the animation, make any other edits to your slide that you want and save it.
