Is there a way to do a standard highlighted bullet point build-in such as:

 

---------------------------

|

|  Native trees in our area:

|     - Poplar

|     - Oak

|     - Maple

|

---------------------------

 

but when I play the presentation, after each of the bullet point is highlighted, the next slide is a photo of the item in question.  In other words, the slides would play as such:

 

1:

---------------------------

|

| Native trees in our area:

|     - Poplar

|

---------------------------

 

2:

---------------------------

|

| <show photo of the poplar>

|

---------------------------

 

3:

---------------------------

|

| Native trees in our area:

|     - Poplar

|     - Oak

|

---------------------------

 

4:

---------------------------

|

| <show photo of the oak>

|

---------------------------

 

etc...

 

Right now I am duplicating the main text slide multiple time and adding a new bullet each time manually but I was wondering if there is a more efficient way to do that.  Just like when using the Highlighted bullet Build-In feature but with a photo in between each bullet.

 

Thanks for any help.

    Its all done on a single page

    drag in photos and align where you need them

    format the text as needed

    the title;  is best left static, put it in a separate text box so it doesnt animate

    in build settings: drag the order so there is;     text pic - text pic - text pic

    the text is set to build on click, the photos are set on auto after paragraph

     

    double click the screen grab below to enlage it

    If this is confusing I can sent you the file so you can see the build sequence

    Thank you Gary.  This looks very promising.  I will try it at home tonight.

     

    But in your solution, do the photos appear on the main slide, as they seem to in your screen grab?  I would like my main slide to only show text.  This is because I have about 8 lines and there would be no room for even a thumbnail next to each line.

     

    And then on step 2 of the build (after the first text bullet), do the pic display at full size by themselves?  That is what I meant.

     

    Thanks again.

    Yes,  in this particular example, but theres plenty of scope to have many ways of animating the items on the page.

     

    If the photo is not on screen with the relative bullet point, it would just be a standard slide show,  you wouldn't need any animation builds, just a separate page for each text and photo so the show is:

     

        text > photo > text > photo > text > phot

     

    This is because I have about 8 lines and there would be no room for even a thumbnail next to each line.

    However,  a larger photo, can accomodate text of 8 lines with plenty space to display a full hight single photo.

    each line would be animated in as a build while the picture is static througout:

    Yes, that's what I have been doing indeed.  The photos are different each time, but since the text builds from slide to slide (as described in the original post), I was wondering if there was some way to add an full screen image in between each bullet point build.

    Indeed.  But I need to photo to change with each bullet point.

    Thats allready covered in the first post, but I made a complete set using 8 bullet points for 8 full screen pictures.  The first bullet point and picture are shown with the build details.

     

    If you want a list of settings for each item or a copy of the Keynote so you can see how it works let me know with a contact email address.
