How to make a typewriter or command line animation in PowerPoint



  powerpoint logo

Adding pampering animations to your Microsoft PowerPoint presentation gives your slide show extra life. It will not only add a typewriter or command line animation to entertain your audience, but it will also keep them focused on the text.

Creating a typewriter / command line animation

The notes and command line animations are very similar. The only differentiating factor is text style. If you go with vintage typewriter looking, we recommend that you go with a 1

2pt Courier New font in black. For the command line view, we recommend that you use a 12pt Lucida Console font in white (or green) over a black background. Since the animations are identical, we will join the command line style as our example here.

Go ahead and open PowerPoint and go to the picture where you want the animation.

You have to make sure you have a black background to work against if you are going to the command line. Go to the "Insert" tab and then click the "Shape" button.

A drop-down menu appears. Select "Rectangle" in the "Rectangles" group.

Click and drag the mouse on the image to draw the shape. You can get the shape to pick up the whole picture or make it smaller if you demonstrate something on a smaller scale.

Now is the time to insert your text. Go to the "Insert" tab and click the "Textbox" button.

 select the text box "width =" 370 "height =" 129 "src =" / pagespeed_static / 1.JiBnMqyl6S.gif "onload =" pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this); "onerror =" this.onerror = zero; pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this);

Note: Yes, you can write text directly in the form. But with the help of a text box, you get a little more control over exactly where that text is displayed.

Click and drag the mouse on the image to draw the text box.

Make sure your character's settings are correct for your respective animation. Because we do the command line animation for this example, we select Lucida Console (1), 12pt font (2) and white (3).

Continue and type the text you want. When finished, select the text box, switch to the "Animations" tab, and then select "View" from the "Animation" section.

On the same tab, click the "Animation pane" button.

 animation window "width =" 279 "height =" 160 "src =" / pagespeed_static / 1.JiBnMqyl6S.gif "onload =" pagespeed.lazyLoadImages .loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this); "onerror =" this.onerror = null; pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this);

The animation box appears on the right side of the window. Select your animation and then click the arrow that appears.

In the drop-down menu, select "Effect Options".

 Effect Options "width =" 188 "height =" 166 "src =" / pagespeed_static / 1.JiBnMqyl6S.gif "onload =" sidespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this); "onerror =" this.onerror = null; pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon

In the window that appears, select the arrow next to "Animate text." In the drop-down menu that appears, select "By letter."

Then enter 0.1 in the" seconds delay between letters "box and then click "OK."

 seconds between animation "width =" 382 "height =" 329 "src =" / pagespeed_static / 1.JiBnMqyl6S.gif "onload =" sidespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this ); " onerror = "this.onerror = null; pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this);

As a matter of good practice, check the animation to make it look good.

And that's it. It's a fun way to show commands during a presentation or to keep the audience's attention with an old-fashioned typewriter animation.
