    Animating connectors? (Office XP)

    On a slide, I have an object I want to animate, say a circle. There is a connector to that circle from another object on the slide. When I animate the first object, I expected the connector end-point to move with it. It didn't. Instead, the connector didn't move at all -- it just got "unconected" from the object. Is there any way to accomplish what I want to do?

    Thanks.

    You have to animate the connector individually. You might try a Grow/Shrink and specify only horizontal growth. Or "Expand" in a new, longer connector while the previous shorter one disappears. Set this animation to "with previous" so it happens at the same time as the circle.

    Oh, wait, I just reread your question. You can group the circle and the connector and animate them together. I think that's probably more along the lines of what you are wanting to do here.

    I treied that. It doesn't do what I want, which is to have the *end* of the connector move with the circle, but have its *start* stay attached to its own object. Instead, the connector becomes disconnected at the start point.

    You'll have to animate the line separately, then. The shapes and connectors just aren't designed to animate together like that.
