View Timeline in Preview Mode

Oct 19, 2011


I'm trying to sync my animations with the voiceover in quizmaker. However, if I preview the slide, I can't see the timeline to see at what time to start my animations.  Is there a work-around?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Jill! In Slide View, you can click the Play button in the lower-left corner of the timeline. This causes the slide to begin playing (including any audio  you've added). When the audio gets to the point where you want an animation to start, click the button again to pause. Then use the timeline to adjust the starting point of whatever objects you want to sync. Then you can hit the button again to resume playing, and continue in the same way till you have everything sync'd. (One note about doing this: when you hit the play button on the timeline, there will probably be a slight delay before the slide actually begins to play - similar to the time it would normally take to preview a slide. Stuff has to load and render, and depending on how much content is on your slide, that can take a few seconds.)

Hope that helps!
