Zoom Objects in PowerPoint

Created: Friday, February 17, 2006, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 7:56 am



I recently saw a PowerPoint presentation in which the presenter showed a slide, then with a mouse click zoomed in to a part of it. I can’t figure out how to do this.

You’ll need either PowerPoint 2002 or 2003 to do this:

1. Select the object you want to zoom.

2. Choose Slide Show | Custom Animation to activate the Custom Animation
task pane.

3. In the Custom Animation task pane, choose Add Effect | Emphasis | Grow/Shrink – if the Grow/Shrink option is not available, choose Add Effect | Emphasis | More Effects | Basic | Grow/Shrink.

To finetune the Grow/Shrink effect, select the animation from the listing on
the task pane, and click the downward pointing arrow next to the listing to
reveal a fly-out menu. Choose Effect Options to summon a dialog box that
lets you play with the settings.
