Figure 1.1
  • The Black Subtracted Rectangle placed sideways; in actuality has been placed on top of 4 numerical lines. For illustration purposes, the animations have been only applied to Line 3 and Line 4. Line 4 contains a long Up Motion Path, whereas Line 3 has a very short Up Motion Path.
  • Type your text/numbers in vertical order and then draw a full slide size rectangle over the text/numbers. Then draw another small rectangle on top of the full rectangle at the point from which you want to subtract. Select both of the rectangles using the SHIFT key and then from the Format tab, click Merge Shapes drop-down button and use Subtract command.

  • That way you will be able to see the text in the background within from the subtracted area of the large rectangle. Apply the same Fill Color and Line Color to the rectangle to match with the Slide Background color, so you may only see the Text/Numbers.
