Changing Animation Order

With the Timing panel (New!), you can change the order of when objects play an animation. Animated objects on the current spread appear in the Timing panel based on the page event assigned to each object animation, either On Page Load, On Page Click, or Unassigned. You can change the animation order, delay time, event assignment, and play animations together, separately, or linked.
