    Drawing lines (Powerpoint 2000)

    Hi

    Is it possible during a presentation to have a line move from one point to another. What I mean is that I have a slide with a map on it and I want to have the line move from one point on the map to another to show where I went on a recent trip. I haven't been able to work out if thats possible.

    Any ideas

    Thanks in advance
    Dax

    Attached is a ppt with two animated lines layered over a map.
    If you have multiple lines to animate - draw them first.
    I used the "custom animation" option under the "slide show" drop down menu. Another method for getting the custom animation dialog box is to right click on the object to be animated and select custom animation from the quick menu.

    The "custom animation" dialog box appears with several tabs;
    The tab for "Effects" is where you can select the lines to animate, wipe feature, and direction or effect to be applied to the line.
    I like to use Wipe and the the I just choose the direction it needs to go.
    The tab for "Order and Timing" is where you can make adjustments to your settings.
