How to make animation repeat in powerpoint

Updated March 23, 2017

PowerPoint has several animation and timing effects to make your presentation visually active. These effects make text and graphics fly off the screen, grow and shrink, or spin in a circle. By default, these animations only play once, but you may change the settings to make them repeat in a loop until you exit the slide. You may also edit the speed that the animation moves at, or set delays for it. The animation-loop process differs between versions of PowerPoint.

Add the animation or effect to the item that you want to animate.

Click on the "Animations" tab, then click the "Show Additional Effects Options" button.

Click on the "Timing" tab. Click on the list next to the "Repeat" label. Select "Until End of Slide."

Add the animation or effect to the item that you want to animate. Click on the item to select it.

Click on the "Animations" tab, then click "Custom Animation."

Right-click on the effect in the custom animation list and select "Timing." Click on the drop-down menu next to the "Repeat" label. Select "Until End of Slide." Click "OK" to close the dialogue box.
