PowerPoint 2010’s default Animation Pane allows you to perform many tasks such as adding animation to any slide object, changing the animation event, and setting the speed of the animation, as required. Most of the time, that may be all you need — but at times, you may want more minute control. You might want two animations to start at the same time, but you want one of them to start just two seconds before the other. In situations like these, you’ll need to use the Advanced Timeline option. Unlike in PowerPoint 2007 and previous versions, you no longer need to change to the Advanced Timeline since that’s the one that is active by default. However, you may have turned it off to enable the Basic Timeline — read on to find out how you can make the Advanced Timeline visible or invisible by following these steps.
