Add a Magic Move transition

A Magic Move transition creates the effect of objects moving from their positions on one slide to new positions on the next slide when you play your presentation.

The easiest way to create a Magic Move transition is to create a slide and add objects to it, then duplicate the slide and rearrange, resize, or reorient the objects on the duplicated slide. Any objects appearing on both Slides become part of the transition. Any objects appearing on the first slide, but not the following slide, fade out. Any objects appearing on the following slide, but not the original slide, fade in.

Add a Magic Move transition

  1. Place objects (text boxes, shapes, and images) on a slide.

  2. Select the slide in the slide navigator, then press Command-D to duplicate the slide.

  3. On the duplicated slide, reposition and resize some or all of the objects.

  4. Add any additional text or graphics you want to the duplicated slide, and delete any objects you don’t want.

  5. Select the first of the two Slides.

  6. Click the Add an Effect button near the top of the sidebar on the right.

    If you don’t see a sidebar, or the sidebar doesn’t have an Add an Effect button, click Add a Magic Move transition in the toolbar.

  7. Choose Magic Move.

  8. Use the controls in the sidebar to adjust the duration of the transition, when the animation plays, and more.

    You can match objects or text as follows:

    • By Object: Moves an object on the first slide to a new position on the second slide.

    • By Word: Moves words on the first slide to new positions on the second slide. You can create the effect of words repositioning themselves to form new phrases or sentences.

    • By Character: Moves characters on the first slide to new positions on the second slide. You can create the effect of letters repositioning themselves to form new words.
