Just wondering if anyone has any tips on how to achieve

powerpoint slide. Any help would be appreciated.

    • The most important thing we need to know, is what version of PowerPoint you

      are using.

    • Hello Frances,

      PowerPoint does not have the specific capability that you are looking for.

      However, you can get something fairly close to the scrolling Star Wars text

      effect in PowerPoint 2003 by combining several different types of animation

      effects (one text box per paragraph, motion path up, grow/shrink, fade).

      If you (or anyone else reading this message) feel strongly that PowerPoint

      should have a specific animation effect (or be able to create a specific

      effect by combining others and without having to resort to VBA or add-ins),

      don't forget to send your feedback to Microsoft at:

      http://register.microsoft.com/mswish/suggestion.asp

      As with all product suggestions, it's important that you not just state

      your wish but also WHY it is important to you that your product suggestion

      be implemented by Microsoft. Microsoft receives thousands of product

      suggestions every day and we read each one but, in any given product

      development cycle, there are only sufficient resources to address the ones

      that are most important to our customers so take the extra time to state

      your case as clearly and completely as possible.

      IMPORTANT: Each submission should be a single suggestion (not a list of

      suggestions).
