Give us Animation Styles and Defaults
Please help us reduce the number of keystrokes and mouse clicks needed to create our work. The Animation engine is the biggest culprit, with a set of rigid defaults that do not remember what we have done in the past and no styles whatsoever. Allow us to designate that, say, we want our Fades to default to After Previous and one second in duration (or at least remember that we asked for that the last time). And allow us to create styles or presets (Wipe Left, With Previous, 2 seconds), which we could then apply to other objects.

Would love to be able to change which animation effects are available in the ribbon. For example, I think I may have used "Random Bars" twice in the last 20 years, but I use "Peek in" several times a month. It would be great to be able to change it so "Peek in" is in the ribbon, but not "Random Bars," or "Float up."
Important indeed! Same problem on the mac. I'll report this message on the ppt-mac uservoice.
