Object animations are called build effects. Different build effects can be applied depending on whether the object is a text box, chart, table, shape, or media (photo, audio, or video). Moving an object onto a slide is building in. Moving an object off a slide is building out. Tap an object, then tap Animate. Tap Build In to move the object onto the slide, or tap Build Out to move the object off the slide.

You can apply both types of builds to an object. Tap the build effect you want; scroll to see them all. To preview the build effect, tap Play at the top of the list.

To see at a glance which slides have object builds, tap, then tap Transitions and Builds. In the, any slide with an object build has three circles in the upper-right corner. You can change the order in which the builds appear for all animated objects on a slide, and specify when they appear in relation to each other (for example, they may appear simultaneously or one after the other). You have a lot of flexibility in how you order your builds.

For example, you can have all the builds for one object play before the builds for another object begin. Or you can interleave the builds, so the builds for one object take turns appearing with the builds for another object. Tap, then tap Transitions and Builds. Tap an object with an effect. Tap an effect, then tap Order below the list of effects. Touch and hold an effect, then drag it to a new position. To change when an effect plays, swipe right over the effect until you see the setting you want.

After Transition: The effect plays after the slide transition. On Tap: The effect plays when you tap. With Previous: The effect plays at the same time as the effect before it. After Previous: The effect plays after the previous effect finishes. Only the relevant options for an effect appear. For example, After Transition appears only for the first effect.

You can also adjust these settings by tapping Options and scrolling down until you see the settings. Tap Done in the upper-right corner of the screen.
