Click the down arrow to the right and then choose
Effect Options from the context menu.
In the dialog box for your specific animation effect
(ours is a Line Custom Motion Path), under the Effect
tab, select the desired enhancements. For a motion path,
your choices are as follows:
Path: Choose from Unlocked or Locked. Choose
Unlocked, and when you move the object, the path
will move as well. Choose Locked, and when you
move the object, the path will not move. Either option
still enables you to edit or reposition the path.
Smooth Start/Smooth End: Select these check boxes,
shown in Figure 14-11, to smooth out the movement
of the animation as it enters or leaves the slide.
Auto-Reverse: The object will reverse the motion after
completing the first motion.
Sound: Select a sound effect to attach to your
animation. If you select Other Sound, navigate to your
desired sound on your hard drive.
