Moving Animation "Animation Pane"
I’d like to suggest a really small idea but it’s really handy.
I’m designing a really complex slides using PowerPoint, with more than 200 animation per slide. So, sometimes I need to add something I’ve already forgot.
So, in order to put it in the right place I need to click and hold the animation all the way up till I reach it right place “in animation pane” so my idea is:
“how about to add moving the animation using numbers”
For example: when I opening animation pane, right click on the animation then it really will be very nice if there is something says “Move by order” then I just need to type the number of where I want that animation should be.
This will save time.
Also on slideshow corner we can put animation number box so that we will get idea which animation is playing currently
During Presentation View, add an option to enable showing the number for the current animation in the corner during a presentation. For example, on a slide with 3 animations, show "2" in a box in the corner of the screen when the second animation gets triggered.
This is helpful when running through a presentation and making sure everything lines up. The Animation Pane is a nice first-level view, but since it auto-plays all animations (or every animation from a selected point), it's hard to see the how the slide would look when presented (especially with pauses between animations).
Enabling the view of the animation number would help with "debugging" any misplaced events that need to be moved and help keep speaker's notes in sync.
Presenter view: In the presenter view I'd like to see some "hints" which animation will be the next. And furthermore see when all animations from one slide are finished and the next click would switch to the next slide.
