Don't want to show your hand all at once when making your points in a PowerPoint presentation? Just try animating each bullet point one at a time. You can make text fly in, float in, or bounce in one line at a time - or just sedately appear.

In PowerPoint for Mac 2011, you can do it all right from the ribbon. To reveal one line at a time in your bulleted list, do the following:

  1. Select the first line of text.
  2. Click the Animations tab.
  3. Under Entrance Effects, click the effect that you want, such as Appear.

When you run the slide show, each line appears as you click the mouse. Want to have a little fun? Try different entrance effects. To see more options for the entrance effect, after you apply the effect, click Effect Options. For example, with the Fly In effect, try From Left.
