I am creating a PowerPoint presentation and I am adding a lot of animations. The animations are too fancy: I am using appear and disappear to draw attention to specific parts of image.
When adding animations, PowerPoint will preview the animation as I add it (including adding additional animations). The appear and disappear are short, but the preview locks most UI controls.
I know what the animations look like and want to focus on adding, ordering, and timing.
How do I turn off animation preview in PowerPoint?
