Unwanted jumps or position shifts in PowerPoint 2007
Posted on 2009-12-19
Occasionally I notice in PowerPoint 2007, that when the same object or text box is present in two or more separate slides, there is an occasional jump or slight shift seen during the slideshow when changing from one slide to the next. This happens despite the fact that in normal view, the objects (or text boxes, etc.), are in exactly the same location on the slides (i.e. there is no jump when changing from one slide to the other in normal view plus the horizontal and vertical position parameters are verified to be exactly the same). Most commonly, this occurs when there is some type of motion (animation) connected to the object. Can you explain why this happens and if and how it can be corrected?
A similar situation I have noticed is that on occasion, when a motion path is added to an object, when the slideshow is run, there will be a slight jump present at beginning of the motion path. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
