Animate text based on position!

Logic: a simple PowerPoint animation change to change the result

You can animate text by paragraph, word or by letter. But what else is there? Well, you can get a variations of text effects just by position and rotation of text on the slide. How?

slide with text

I have horizontal text (Font is Alba, by the way), animated as Add Effect| Entrance| Flip.

animation options

Notice that text is animated by Letter, with a delay of 10% between letters.

result 1

We get a nice, cool curved animation effect. but text does not have to be on a slide horizontally, especially for artistic reasons!


Nothing has changed here except text direction, that is, the direction of the actual text box. So, we get variation on the same effect. Yes, they do Fold, but not as a curve.
