Link to a slide and all animations are lost!

Created: Wednesday, July 14, 2004, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 6:41 am



When I link back to a slide and click the link, the slide shows itself in ‘finished’ mode with all animations, events and transitions done. How can I prevent this?

That’s something that can be termed as ‘feature-by-design’. Here’s a workaround:

1. In your presentation, insert blank slides between all slides.

2. Give these blank slides a slide transition that automatically advances in 00:00 seconds.

3. Place all hyperlinks to the blank slide before the slide you actually want to hyperlink.

Now when you view the slide show, all animations for a particular slide will show.
