Configure motion paths
Dragging the start point or end point displays the animated objects in both positions.
If smart guides are turned on (which they are by default), you can use them to align the
animated object with other slide elements.
It is important to note that you can move the animated object independent of its motion
path so that the object moves from its original location on the slide to the beginning of
the motion path, before following the motion path.
