The slide into which I'm zooming contains several animated objects. How can I hide these objects in the Slide Zoom preview?

The slide contains a lot of objects and text in its final state and looks cluttered if shown all at once. It's especially nonsensical if it's 10 times smaller.

This problem is easily solved by using the Change Image function of the slide zoom.

  1. Click on the slide zoom object
  2. In the ribbon, click on the Format tab
  3. On the left, click on the Change Image button

  • Using Change Image here would require that you have a screenshot of the slide without all of the animated objects, correct? So you would need to view the slide, save a screenshot to file, then use Change Image to select that screenshot to use for each affected Slide Zoom?
