I'm working on a PowerPoint presentation with several animations. But when I try to add the animations, it automatically previews it. And when it's in preview, it locks the presentation. How can I disable animation preview?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
Just access the Animations tab of the Ribbon, and find the Preview button located towards the extreme left.
Click the downward pointing arrow on the bottom half of this button to bring up a small menu. Within this menu, make sure that the AutoPreview option has no checkmark (click once to remove the checkmark).
Now your animations will not preview automatically!
In PowerPoint 2007, there’s no equivalent way to turn off these animation previews.
