You can also view the properties of an object by selecting it from the dropdown menu at the top of the properties panel.
This section shows the general property of the object.
This section is dependent on the type of object selected. In this section, for example, you can change the text or formatting of a text object. You can also fine tune (using numerical values) the position, angle or size of each object.

EffectsIn this section you will choose the effects you want applied to the object. These effects are broken down into several types:
- Start Effect: This effect is applied when displaying the object.
- End Effect: This effect is applied when hidding the object. This effect will only be displayed if you select a display time different than infinite It will not be automatically applied during the transition to next slide.
- Animation: This effect is applied during the time the object is visible (everytime).
You will find 2 more check boxes that allow you to add a shadow or reflection in the object.
This part is common to all elements. This is where you choose when and how to display the object.
Using Display parameter, you will choose when the object will be displayed.
Using Duration parameter you choose the display time of the object. The default is infinite.
In this section you can create a dynamic object by assigning a target. If an object has a click target, the mouse cursor will turn into a hand when it is positioned over the object.
You can assign several types of targets:
Open a page (new window):Clicking on this object will open a web page in a new window (popup). Click the "..." button to specify the address (URL)
Open a page (same window):Clicking on this object will open a web page in the current window. Click the "..." button to specify the address (URL)
Open a slide:A click will show another slide of the banner. Click the "..." button to specify the target slide number.
You can also assign an overall target on the banner (if you just want the user to click anywhere on the banner to open a page - like a banner ad) using the Project/Settings menu, "Global Click Action" tab.
