Animate bullet points separately

text

#1

Sometimes we type several items into one single text box as bulleted lines or numbered list and after typing that, we want to, for example, animate them separately… then we start a tedious process of copy-pasting to split the single text box in separated lines of text…

It would be great a simple method for explode single text lists into different text box by using one single command.
Dont you think so?

Tanks.

Hi!

I have just started using Prezi Next and have only used Classic briefly before.

So I have a text with say 5 paragraphs. They are all written in one text-box. I want to fade in each paragraph one after the other. So it becomes a “slow reveal”. The thing is the only way to do that seems to be through creating a new text-box, pasting one paragraph in it, and then adjusting the position and size of it in relation to the other 4 text boxes. It’s quite tedious and time consuming and in the end the size of the texts easily differs.

Do you understand the dilemma?

It would seem best if I could just split up a text box in several boxes through a command and then fade each in.

All the best,
Elias

Yes, the solution would be creating new text boxes for every paragraph in order to achieve gradual reveal.

In order to maintain the same text formatting of every text box, I would suggest copying and pasting a paragraph and then adding the new text, like in this GIF:

After that is done, please add individual animations to the text boxes:

This is how it would look in the end:

I would also like to request this feature. I’m a university reference librarian and I make presentations showing students how to navigate the library website, search the catalog and article databases, etc. I often incorporate screenshots of a search page, and then use fade-in arrows and/or zoom to sequentially call out certain features I want them to notice. I’d like to be able to pair each of those animations with a descriptive bullet point that would appear at the same time.

If the entire bulleted list appears all at once before I’ve described each of the features, it’s potentially overwhelming and I think students may actually absorb it less because they will skim the whole thing rather than reading each point as it appears.

@Maren_Williams, it is possible to pair such animations with bullet points. That just requires selecting elements in a group. You can see it shown in the video below:
