Roll your own Top Ten List
In wrapping up the work for the April 2008 Edition, a little feature has been thrown in that may be fun to use from time-to-time: The Top Ten List Builder. This new slide builder lets you easily create a Top Ten list (ala David Letterman style) where the items animate onto slides in reverse numerical order. This is actually a good example of how a builder can really save you some time. Creating a slide show were a list of items animate separately in reverse order is actually a bit of a challenge, and is somewhat tedious at best. The builder does all the hard work. The builder doesn't actually limit you to ten items. You can actually specify any number of items and specify any number of items on a slide.
Below is a screen show of the Top Ten List builder using a recent Top Ten list from The Late Show.
If I get a chance, I'll post a video of the slide show as it runs.
