I'm making a presentation for school, and I wanted to make an animation where some texts get's a strike-through.

Basically from this:

To this:

I've already looked in the animations and found Change Font Style however, it didn't have strikethrough in there.
Google didn't help me either, so I hope somebody here can :)


  • I don't see a way to achieve this directly. You could fake it by having a second copy of the text on top, struck through, but invisible until animated to appear. That would be fiddly though and make editing awkward.
