Animating Slide Content

Scroll Prev Top Next More

In addition to slide transitions, HelpXplain can also animate elements within each slide when the slide enters or exits. You can make elements fade or animate into view and out of view, and you can insert delays for these things that enable you to create animated tutorials, for example.

Mouseover actions for elements are defined in the object link dialog.

Previewing animations

When you are working on animations you can preview them with the Preview Animation tool in the Animations tab. (The Preview tool up in the title bar previews the entire Xplain.) This tool has two modes that you can select by clicking on the arrow in the lower half of the tool:


Preview all animations in the slide

Previews all the animations defined in the slide in order.

Preview selected objects only

Previews only the animation for the currently selected object.
