Number of animations per slide

Mar 17, 2011


I am having an issue with an animation heavy slide in Presenter. It will preview fine in powerpoint. When I publish in Presenter the animations do not work properly. We have a person's arm that comes up and looks as if it is writing on a board as the text appears. The arm then disappears after the text appears. We have six text boxes that should as if they are being written on the board.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Hi Karen and welcome to Heroes,

If you are experiencing issues with your animations a good place to start would be to refer to this blog entry here: 

While Presenter supports the vast majority of PowerPoint animations, it does not support them all. For a list of supported animations, please see:

You can refer to our online documentation here regarding syncing your animation timings with your audio here:
