I'm trying to get the following effect and have not been able to sort it out myself, nor find the 'just right' combination of search words on this forum, please helpf if you can:
1. All bullets appear on new slid (no build in).
2. All bullets except the first fade to 50% opacity (i.e. emphasis on first bullet).
3. First bullet fades to 50% opacity while second bullet increase opacity to 100% (i.e. emphasis on 2nd bullet).
I'm about ready to do this slid-by-slid, but am certain there must be a way to do it (so far I've not found a way to make actions apply simultaneously across objects or selectively within the same textbox).
Thanks for the response! That is what I thought as well, but I have not found a way to apply the 50% opacity across multiple text boxes at the same time, so I am left with sequential fading that I'd really like to avoid, if possible (I find the gradual fade a little busy, and this is a rather important presentation for me, so the details matter a lot).
Is it possible to apply actions simultaneously? If not, I'll just duplicate the slide however many times & have each subsequent slide set up with the desired fading - I just got the impression that Keynote was designed for such things and I should learn how to do it properly!
