Scenario: You want to loop a particular slide that contains multiple animations, then continue with rest of the slides. The problem is, the current feature only allows you to loop the entire slide show.
Solution: One way is to use Custom Show.
First, click Slide Show > Set Up Show.
Put a checkmark to Loop continuously until ‘Esc’.
Now, Click Slide Show > Custom Shows.
Select the slide you are looping, click Add.
Click Ok and Close.
Click on the slide you are looping.
Click Slide Show > Slide Transition.
Under Advance slide, put a checkmark to Automatically After. This will allow the slide to loop automatically.
Do NOT Apply to all slides.
Right click on the thumbnail of the current slide, select Hide Slide.
Now, you will need to insert a new slide just before the slide you are looping.
On the new slide, insert an action button.
Set the hyperlink to the custom show you have created.
Put a checkmark on “Show and Return”.
Ok your way out.
Now, view the slide show.
If you click on the action button, you will go into the custom show, which will loop until you press the esc key to continue with the rest of the slides.
