Need a bit of help with Powerpoint
In short, I'm looking for a way to activate and deactivate a text message using the text box at any desired point during a presentation.
I have been doing basic presentations for the Real Estate I work for their property auctions, and my boss saw another presentation recently where as a property was being auctioned, when it got to the point where the reserve had been met, the operators of the presentation activated a text overlay of the property slides that displayed "We're Selling" and once the property sold, they displayed "SOLD" over the slides.
Is there a way that this can be key or mouse-click activated so that at anytime during the presentation it can be activated and deactivated?
Also to make matters worse, I only have Powerpoint 2000.
I have found out that the presenters weren't using Powerpoint, but I'm hoping that Powerpoint has a similar feature.
Edit: If Powerpoint cannot do this, is there a program that can run in the background that can overlay text or images onscreen that is key activated? Just a thought.
Any help greatly appreciated.
