In this course, author David Diskin lays out a practical framework for building and delivering business presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint, and covers tips and tricks for controlling elements in slide decks. This course demonstrates how to engage an audience, present data in meaningful ways, incorporate gestures, and manage question-and-answer sessions. The course also includes tips on creating photo slide shows and utilizing keyboard and mouse tricks.
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!
