animation for paragraphs

Sep 27, 2013

No matter whether I have a first level or a second level paragraph (indented bullets) when I try to animate first level paragraphs - the 2nd level  bullets gets animated separately as well.

How do I NOT get it to inlcude 2nd level paragraphs? (or am I misunderstanding the meaning of 2nd level paragraphs??)

Hi Angela,

See attached. There are 3 text boxes. The first two only have what I think you're thinking are "first level" paragraphs -- that is, one level of bullets.

• The one labeled: fade in all at once does just that. All 4 bullets fade in at the same time.
• The one labeled fade in by fist level paragraphs does just that. Each bullet comes in separately (using SL's Animations by first level paragraphs option)
• The one labeled Fade in by fist level paragraph with 2nd level has what I think you're thinking of as 2nd level paragraphs -- that is, under each bullet there's a sub-level. I've set this up as animation by first level paragraphs AND, if you look at the timeline, I've adjusted the start time for each of the items, one second apart.
