You won’t have to tackle locking and unlocking motion paths too often but it’s good to know more about these options since the way this works is not too intuitive……You really don’t need to lock/unlock a motion path from its slide object to move it around. To do that, just select the slide object, then select the actual motion path — and drag it around as required. This process just moves the motion path, and leaves the slide object in its original place. Confusing? Yes — it is a little, unless you play around for a few minutes!
