Tips from the Pros

Glenna ShawIf you animate shapes with multiple sequential motion paths, you'll find that its' not too easy to line them up and "connect" them end to end. If you turn off Snap to Grid and turn on Snap objects to other objects options, then the ends of the motion paths snap right together when you move them near each other. And if the start point accidentally gets moved off center of your object, all you have to do is move it a little bit and it'll go right back to the center of the object. This works for both locked and unlocked motion paths.

Add to Glenna's tip:

Julie TerbergMotion paths will snap to intersecting guides, too. This works great for accurate positioning

Geetesh BajajPowerPoint for Mac users cannot add motion path animations since this feature is not available on PowerPoint for Mac. However, users of PowerPoint 2004 and 2008 for Mac can still view the motion path animations when they play presentations created in PowerPoint 2002, 2003, and 2007 for Windows.
