Learn PowerPoint 2010: Slide Transition Timings

Created: Friday, January 20, 2012, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:45 am



In a previous tutorial you learned how to add transitions to your slides and edit the transition duration (speed). In this tutorial we’ll show you how to edit transition timings. Remember that transition duration and transition timings are not the same. Transition time is the actual time that the slide stays active during a slide show before moving on to the next slide. Transition duration is the amount of time it takes to move between slides — in previous versions of PowerPoint, duration was called speed. Normally, during a slide show, you can advance to the next slide by clicking your mouse (or pressing the Enter key on your keyboard). Using transition timings on the other hand, you can set your slides to advance on their own instead, and display each slide for a specific amount of time that you decide.

Learn how to set transition timings for the slides in PowerPoint 2010.

  • Hey G, I've searched forever to find a way to set the Transition Duration to "0" so there is NO pause between slides.
    Any help/suggestions?

  • A duration of zero indicated no transition at all.
