One of my slides has several shapes, each of which contains text that is a

hyperlink to other slides in the deck.

I simply want each shape to display a animation emphasis when I mouse over it.

Is there a simple way to accomplish this without writting VBA?

Thanks in adavance.

      You cannot trigger an animation on mouse-over it can only be triggered by

      mouse-click. You can highlight the shape on mouse-over using actionsettings.

    • Thanks for your reply Shyam ;-)

      The mouse-over highlight is so brief.

      Is there a way to mouse over a shape, highlight it while the cursor is still

      on the shape and maintain the highlight until the cursor is moved off the

      shape?

      Basically I have an "index" slide; each shape is a hyperlink.

      As I hover over each shape I would like that shape to remain highlighted

      until I move off that shape.

      Thanks again,

      Kennard
