    Imagine you are at a wedding party, you are the best man or woman and you have everything planned out for your best friend's wedding. There is a sequence planned: You let the kitchen know that if you are done with the best-(wo)mans-speech, just after you raised your glass to toast, they start rolling in the cake with fireworks. So the head waiter keeps an eye out for this... At some point you will start giving your speech, and at the end you will raise your glass to toast and that's the signal that then automatically brings in the cake, in some circles this is also known as "the next slide of the wedding party"

    So what happens today in PowerPoint ... you give the instructions to the head waiter for the kitchen to bring in the cake with fireworks automatically when you raise your glass...
    And in the middle of your speech, right about when you were going to bring your best joke of the night ... the head waiter walks up to you, physically forces you to raise your hand/glass, and then signals the kitchen to "automatically" bring in the cake with fireworks, "because you just raised your glass" ...

    So thats why I actually think this is a bug, the features are there. When setting 'advance slider' to automatic after 0 seconds.
    Why should this "automatic event at the end of a slide" impact click animations on the active slide that you are planning to do when appropriate while the current slide is still being presented?
    Why should these "on click" animations all of a sudden become automatic as well...

    As a professional presentation designer things like this make me sad ... and make me wonder if the PowerPoint design team actually has presentation professionals on board that can speak to the product from the perspective of actually using it...
