Grow and Shrink Effect UI is missing

The custom animation effect to grow and shrink is missing in the UI.

Step to reproduce:
1. Create a new presentation in Impress
2. Insert a picture
3. Navigate to Slide Show -> Custom Animation -> Add -> Emphasis 

Expected behavior:
1. View Grow and Shrink Effect in the list

Current behavior:
1. The Grow and Shrink Effect is missing from the Emphasis Tab

This bug goes back to 2006. It was discussed here:
and reported here:

I have confirm on Windows AOO 4.0.1. Attached is a file that shows that the logic for grown and shrink effect is in AOO, while the UI can't access it.

As described.

In addition: ooo-emphasis-vertical-highlight is missing in the UI too.

I see both listed in /sd/xml/effects.xml, sd/xsl/effect.xsl, and officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/UI/Effects.xcu

I tried to compare the effects defined and used.
The following effects are defined in effects.xml but not found in the configuration: 

name: label (empty label means no label defined)
ooo-motionpath-curved-x: Curved X
ooo-emphasis-vertical-highlight: Vertical Highlight
ooo-exit-spiral-out: Spiral Out
ooo-emphasis-grow-and-shrink: Grow and Shrink
Comment 3 slacka 2014-02-06 21:58:27 UTC

I tested all of the effects and like grow and shrink, the implementations are all working in AOO. It appears that ooo-entrance-snake-wipe is the same as ooo-entrance-thread-wipe. For ooo-motionpath-curved-x, the UI must be tweaked to allow the user to draw the curved loop for the object to traverse.
