    Are you trying to animate the slide transitions/words or trying to import .gif icon or images?

    Hi Rachel,

    I have audio to start on click and then would like to have multiple text boxes to float in and out  / loop until the next click.  I can get the text to loop once, but I cannot figure out how to have the text boxes to loop continously until next click.

    As your colleague, I'm so bummed that I can't figure out how to loop a series of animations. There must be a way!!! I even tried putting all the text in one box so that I could repeat just that one box, but it over-runs the page and doesn't perform correctly. :(

    Hi Michele, 

    I know it's not a very elegant solution, but I would repeat the slide that has the correct loop until you reach the length of loop you're looking for. Say you want this to loop for 2 minutes while people join and your one slide is 30 seconds long, I'd have 4 of the same slides in an autoplay powerpoint. 
    Again, there might be a more elegant way to do it, but that would be my quick fix!

    Cheers,
