Peek In animation does not complete

Article Last Updated

This article applies to:

You may find that a shape, image, text, or other object with a Peek In animation applied to it may appear truncated or cut off (i.e., the Peek In animation does not complete) if both the following criteria are true:

  • The Peek In animation is the last (or only) animation on the slide.
  • The slide also has narration or audio.

This is a known issue.  You can correct it.  Here's how:

  1. Add a new shape or image to the slide.
  2. Add the Peek In entrance animation to the new shape or image.
  3. Move the new shape or image off the PowerPoint slide (so that it will not appear in the published output).
