Timing Panel (SWF Only)
When more than one item is animated on a page, or spread, the Timing panel gives you the ability to control the order in which the animated objects play. Each animated item is listed in the panel, and you have the ability to drag the items up and down the list to control the order in which they play. If you select multiple items and click the link icon in the lower-right corner of the Timing panel, those objects will begin animating at the same time (see Figure 5). There is also a delay feature, which can be assigned to each object, and allows you have multiple animations playing at the same time, but with different start times.
