In our ongoing animation tutorial series, we showed you how you can add an animation to any slide object in PowerPoint. However, there’s more to text animation than just adding animation. By default, when you animate a text placeholder or text box, all the text contained animates at one go unless your text content is within a bulleted or numbered list — in that case, all text animates in sequence. Even then, the animation is sequenced to first level paragraphs (first level bullets) — and any sub-bullet levels contained in your text placeholders or text boxes animates along with its parent level. In this tutorial, you will learn how you can access some specialized options for animating paragraphs and bulleted text sequentially by words, by letters, and by paragraph levels.

Explore the extra options available for text animations in PowerPoint 2010.
