Duplicating Animation

"copy master animation optionHey,

This is really frustrating. I've been a PowerPoint user since it first came
out, on both PC and Mac. I have just upgraded to the newest on both
platforms. For some reason the makers of the program have never figured out
an easy way to duplicate animation effects from object to object or across
all slides of a presentation. In the past I could at least set up animation
in the masters and have it duplicated to the title and text blocks of the
slides. If I made changes to the animation in the master, it would
automagically update any slides where I hadn't overriden the animation. I
could also revert to the master animation by re-applying the layout to that
slide. Previous versions of PPT for PC had a "copy master animation" option.
None of this seems to work any more - to where I now have to go
slide-by-slide and reconfigure the animation if I want it all to change.
I've looked into add-ons and I even saw where I could write macros in Visual
Basic. Surely someone else is having this problem and has found a solution???

Thanks.

Thanks, but Animation Carbon is not yet updated for 2007. One thing I did do
that sped things up a little was to make a dupe of the file, then go back and
delete all the slides, then create a new slide and duplicate it, so all the
master animation is copied to all the new blank slides. Then I went slide by
slide and copied the contents from the duplicated presentation into the blank
slides. Clumsy, but faster than changing the animation slide by slide.
