We want to create a self-running show that automatically advances and loops when it reaches the end. In Chapter01 and recently in Chapter07, I showed you how to use transitions, which animate the screen between slides. It's from that same feature that we will begin the automatic slideshow. I will select the Transitions tab and check the After box under Advanced Slide on the far right. I will give it a setting as little as one second or as much as 10 minutes. Clicking Apply to All will put the 2 second advance on to every slide in my presentation.
I can still individually adjust the timing per slide if I wanted. Let's test this out with F5. And I will press Esc to return. Note that when I reach the end of the slideshow, it just sits there with a blank screen. To make it repeat, I will press Esc and click on the Slideshow tab, then Set Up Slideshow.
Here we will find a checkbox called Loop continually until I press Esc. I'll check that and click OK. We will start with Slide 10 and hit Shift+ F5 to begin the presentation from the slide. Now let's sit back and see if our loop worked. And here we are back at the beginning. Easy!
