…A very common animation is the revealing of text in a bulleted list.…Now I use bulleted lists a lot in my presentations,…but I try to keep them short and to the point.…The use of a build is a great way to control the pacing.…On this slide, I have a single list.…And right now I'm dissatisfied that the text is wrapping.…So by expanding the width of the text block, I can get it so that it wraps a…bit better, and avoids the single word wrapping down to the next line.…
Under Animations, let's take a look at some of our choices.…Now, choosing Float In brings each one up,…and that's fine.…You'll note that it automatically broke them apart.…If we look at this, we can see how that split it apart into different builds.…Under Effect Options here, is where you can set the direction.…Also this controls whether it builds as a single group.…As one object, although in this case it appears quite similar.…Or by paragraph, which is every single line break.…The difference here of One Object and All at Once are…subtle, but really come into play when you're using paragraphs of text.…
