Animations Won't Stay Synced
Jul 15, 2013
I’m having an issue with my animations when publishing and previewing my project.
When I create the animations and preview the slideshow through PowerPoint, everything looks good. Then, when I go to sync my animations with my voice over, everything looks good and syncs and all of my animations come up. I save and close and return to the presenter, and then go to preview my slides. When I do this, the synced animations don’t appear.
I have tried changing my options from advancing automatically to by user and vice versa. This does not help.
I have also set my animations to start “with previous” so the first animation’s value is 0. I then synced my animations (again, looked fine in the syncing window), but when I previewed, animations still did not appear. I went through this process with both “after previous” and “on click” options as well, still no luck.
The voice over is also long enough that I know it’s not a timing issue (where the animation appears after the v/o ends and the slide advances). All animations are supported (simple fades that are set to appear all at once, not by letter or by word). I am running Windows 7 and PowerPoint 2007.
This is mostly happening with my text animations – picture animations seem to be just fine.
Please help. I’m working on a deadline and no one in my office seems to know what’s going on.
