Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Timing panel, part of InDesign CC: Interactive Document Fundamentals (2014).
When you're working with animations, you'll often find you…need to exert some control over their order and timing.…For that, you can use the Timing panel, let's see how it works.…Here I have a page that could be used in a presentation, and it's…a list of the eight reasons it's great to study at the Roux Academy.…And I'd like to animate this list, so the reasons appear one at a time in sequence.…For that they need to separate objects, which…is why I have eight separate text frames here,…instead of just one.…With all the frames selected, I'll open my…Animation panel and I'll just a preset Fade In.…
I'll preview and the reasons fade in but I have…a couple of problems here.…State of the art facilities and world class teaching come in last.…Well, why is that?…InDesign isn't using the arrangement of frames on…the page to set the order of animations.…It's using the order in which these frames were created.…And when I made this list,…I forgot World-Class Teaching and State-of-the-Art Facilities,…so I added those last and moved them into position on the page.…
