The "Quick Listicle" slide type is a great one to use when you want to create a list sequence that has some more weight to it, or for a multitude of other uses at that.
In essence, it consists of what we call a "listicle" field – that can take any string (number or words) up to 12 characters – and a message field that has a lot of size options. So using the listicle field as a short label gives you a lot of flexibility. The slide also has separate animation controls for the listicle field and the message to allow you to chain this slide in different ways.
It's a great utility slide that, with minimal effort, can be utilized in many ways.
Behavior and usage
These are the settings you can use.
- Choose if the Listicle Text and Message should animate in and out with Listicle Animation Control and Message Animation Control.
- Input your Listicle Text in the field with the same name.
- Input your Message text in one of the Message text fields. The Large version is the default, and when there is text in this field, it will be used, regardless of the Medium or Small field is activated. So to use the latter two, the Large field must be empty.
The fields hold different amounts of text, like this:
- Large (Default): 100 characters
- Medium: 180 characters
- Small: 360 characters
Under Slide Settings, you control the placement (vertically) of the texts. If you, for instance, want to make sure that you can chain multiple Listicle Text fields (that is, not animating them and keeping the same content), make sure you choose the "Top" position since that will anchor the Listicle Number to the top of the allowed area. You can also choose Fixed and input your value in "pixels from the top of canvas edge." So "0" will make it stick to the absolute top edge (which is a bit strange).
Here you also set the shape of the plate behind the Listicle Text. If it's set to Rounded, it will form a circle when using single digits or letters. Otherwise, it will be a rounded rectangle. You can also set it to None to remove the shape altogether.
You can also add a border – giving you the chance to set the shape's opacity to 0 (this is done under Color) and have an outline around the text.
You can control the maximum scale-up of the Listicle Text, giving you "more size." Leave it at 100 to have the text stay at its original Huge Number size.
