Thank you for another outstanding tutorial from Kara; she does a superb job in every tutorials she provides. I appreciate all the tutorials you provide... for two reasons. First of all they allow us to use PPT and PresenterMedia to their fullest advantage. Secondly, as an indivudual that has very experience using PPT, it helps to train me at the same time on the various functions available in PPT. I enjoy using PresenterMedia and will be with you for a long, long time. I consider PresenterMedia to be a necessary program in my arsenal and will certainly recommend it to all my friends and associates. Thanks agan for a magnificent product. Steve

Great Tutorials....How do do an animation the shows a character fall flat on their back like in boxing

Donna: That's a great suggestion for an animation. If you wanted to make this effect happen yourself, you could do one of two things: first, simply add a "spin" effect (Emphasis Effects) to the object, then go into the Effect Options and change it to a 1/4 spin clockwise/counterclockwise. If you want to mix it up a bit, you can have a motion path be playing (like they are falling backwards a ways) and then the spin effect at the same time, as if they were "punched" and thrown backwards as they fell.

Your presentations are going to be amazing!
