Using Animation Artist in PowerPoint 2010

The Animation Draw Wizard in PowerPoint 2010 is similar in many ways to the Format Draw Artist, which has long been part of the Microsoft Office suite. The animation artist allows the creator of the presentation to copy the animation effects from one object (and any settings applied to that animated object) to another object (or multiple objects) with a single click on each new object. This feature saves time and also prevents repetitive stress injuries caused by many extra mouse clicks.
