Change the playing order of your animation effects

If your animation effects aren’t playing in the sequence that you want, you can rearrange the order. Here’s how:

  1. Click the object on your slide with the animation effects that you want to reorder.

  2. On the Animations tab, click Animation Pane.

    Open the Animation Pane

  3. In the Animation Pane, click and hold the animation effect you want to move, and drag it up or down to a new position. In the picture below, we’re moving the 1st animation effect down below the 3rd one.
