How to Use the PowerPoint 2013 Animation Painter

The Animation Painter in PowerPoint 2013 makes it easy to copy a complete animation effect from one object to another. To use the Animation Painter, follow these steps:

1

Apply an animation effect to one of the objects in your slide show.

For example, if you applied a custom animation to a slide’s subtitle, you might also want to apply that same animation to the title.

2

Select the object you have animated.

You need to select the object, not the animation. In this case you select the subtitle text box.

3

In the Advanced Animation group of the Animations Ribbon tab, click the Animation Painter button.

The mouse pointer changes to a little paintbrush.

If you want to apply the animation to more than one object, double-click the Animation Painter button. Then, you can repeat Step 4 as many times as you wish to copy the animation to multiple objects. When your animation frenzy has come to a close, press the Esc key.

4

Click the object you want to apply the animation to.

The animation that you created for the object selected in Step 2 is applied to the object you clicked on in this step.
