Working with Motion Paths
Hide on Next Mouse Click. This setting makes the object disappear when you
click the mouse after the animation has completed. For example, this is useful
for showing and then hiding individual bullet points.

You can choose a color for the object after animation or specify that it should be
hidden afterward.

Working with Motion Paths
Motion paths enable you to make an object fl y onto or off of the slide and also make it fl y
around on the slide in a particular motion path! For example, suppose you are showing a
map on a slide and you want to graphically illustrate the route that you took when travel-
ing in the area represented on the map. You could create a little square, circle, or other
AutoShape to represent yourself and then set up a custom motion path for the shape that
traces your route on the map.
Using a Preset Motion Path
PowerPoint comes with dozens of motion paths, in every shape that you can imagine. To
choose one of them for an object, follow these steps:
1. On the slide, click the object that you want to animate, and then choose
Add Animation and then either scroll
down to the bottom and click one of the paths on the list or choose More
Motion Paths.
Advanced Animation
2. If you choose More Motion Paths, the Add Motion Path dialog box appears
(Figure 16.17). Click the path that you want.
