If you have multiple objects on a PowerPoint slide that you want to give the same animation to, you don't need to apply animation to them individually. Instead, group them together so that they act as a single object.
To begin with, open the PowerPoint presentation and navigate to the slide containing the objects you want to group and animate. If you haven't yet inserted the objects , you can do this by clicking on the "Insert " tab and choosing the option (such as "Images " or "Shapes ") for the desired object .
Next, select all the objects on the slide that you want to group together. You can do this by holding down the "Ctrl" key ("Command" on the Mac) and clicking on the objects. Alternatively, you can click and drag your mouse over objects.
An object is selected if a box appears around it.
Next, right-click on a selected object. In the context menu that appears, hover your cursor over "Group ", then select "Group "in the submenu.
All the selected objects are now grouped together and PowerPoint themwill treat as a single object.
When you apply an animation, it will affect all the objects that are in this group. To define an animation, click on the group, and in the "Animations tab ", choose the animation you want to use in the " Animation "options. We will use the " Float In "animation in this example.
Now when you play the animation, the objects in the group will animate simultaneously.
That's all there is to it! Much of the appeal of PowerPoint is the ability to manipulate objects in different ways. You can take your animation skills to the next level by combining multiple motion paths to your clustered object.
