Repeat - Sets the number of times an animation effect plays or sets the animation to play until the next click or end of the slide. Lets you repeat the effect so the object is animated several times in succession.
Rewind when done playing - Returns the object to its original position after the animation has played. Effects that are not visible at the start of the animation will be hidden at the end of the animation if this check box is selected. Certain effects can leave the object in a different location to when you started. This restores the object to its original position.
Animate as part of click sequence - The animation is triggered as part of the click sequence displayed in the animation list.
Start effect on click of - The animation is triggered when you click an object that you select from the drop-down list.
Group text - Sets the text in animations to be animated as a group or by paragraphs.
Automatically after - Sets the interval to start playing the effect after in seconds.
Animate attached shape - When this checkbox is selected, the shape that contains text is animated. When cleared, only the text is animated.
In reverse order - Sets the paragraphs in text animations to animate in reverse order.
If you only have one outline level on your slide then grouping by "1st level Paragraphs" will do. If you have more than one outline level then this option will cause each paragraph to be animated along with any paragraphs that are subordinate to it ?? If you would rather animate the second paragraphs separately then group your text by "2nd Level Paragraphs".
