Hello, I have a one slide Powerpoint that has 12 animations that run on the single slide. I would like this Powerpoint to run continuous but after the last animation it just sits on the blank slide. Can this be ran continous?

Thank you

Have you selected the "loop continuously" option in "Set up slide show"?

Two ways.

1 set the slide transition time to zero or a low number. In SLIDE SHOW > Set up show choose Loop Continuously tilll esc
2. In SLIDE SHOW > Set up show choose shown at a kiosk.

More veribage details that can be found in sample I provided about...

Set timer for each component of slide (set to 'advance after previous' animation)
Each component will need this setting
 

-and-

Set timer for Auto advance for Slide (don't use 0 (zero did not work for me on my 2007)... use a number so PP will know advancement should occur)

-and-

Loop continuously - (slide show settings)

I included a 2007 version sample above...

You didn't do this bit:

SLIDE SHOW > Set up show . either Loop or Kiosk

Oops, I must have forgot to re-check the loop box when I was playing with it. Anyways, if you choose loop it will still stop after the last animation.

Not if you set the transition to Automatic after zero seconds

your slide had 4:00 wait before advance...

I added 'loop' under slideshow setup

and

changed slide wait for advance to 1:40

These changes - worked for me


This file attached is fixed / corrected and works for me

Note zero seconds is the correct setting. It will always wait for animations to complete.

Thank you. I was aware of the loop. I just forgot to re-check it after I was screwing with it. It was the wait before advance. Doh!

Thanks again.
