answerspleasee asked on October 19, 2010 Q: How to delete all the animations in a presentation heyehy how do I delete all animations i have put on for the past 200 slides. k.thanks.bye Shyam Pillai replied on October 19, 2010 MVP A: Hi, You can turn off the animations by going to Setup Slide Show and under Show Options tick the Show without animation option and click OK. Now run the show and it will display without the animations. If you really want to delete all the animations in a single sweep then you will need to run this macro. Sub StripAllBuilds() Dim I As Integer: Dim J As Integer Dim oActivePres As Object Set oActivePres = ActivePresentation With oActivePres For I = 1 To .Slides.Count If val(Application.Version) < 10 Then ' Older versions of PowerPoint 97/2000 ' In each slide set the animation property ' of the Shape object to FALSE For J = 1 To .Slides(I).Shapes.Count .Slides(I).Shapes(J).AnimationSettings.Animate = msoFalse Next J Else ' New versions support the Timeline object For J = .Slides(I).TimeLine.MainSequence.Count To 1 Step -1 .Slides(I).TimeLine.MainSequence(J).Delete Next J End If Next I End With Set oActivePres = Nothing End Sub Regards, Shyam Pillai. http://skp.mvps.org Regards Shyam Pillai http://skphub.com
