Created: Tuesday, July 31, 2012, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:30 am



In PowerPoint, a Motion Path is a path or route along which a slide object animates on your slide. Motion Paths can be either anchored to the slide object, or not. The anchoring (unlocking) and unanchoring (locking) of Motion Paths are rarely explored options, and that may be because these are not too well documented or even intuitive. However, it’s good to know more about anchoring of Motion Paths, since this knowledge can help you create better animations.
