Description gerymate 2008-07-01 19:09:43 UTC

I am trying to add custom animations to a grouped object (a lot of objects
grouped into one object). I create the group, add the motion path, say, I set
the object to move to the right. The motion path vector is placed into the
slide, but when I start a slide show, the object "jumps" a bit at the start of
the animation. It seems that the motion path vector does not begin at the center
of the object. Also, if I move the motion path, I am not able to position it
back to it's former place.

I also want to add another motion path to the object, which I want to start
exactly at the end of the first motion path, to produce continuous animation.
Currently I can't "snap" the second motion path to the beginning of the first. 

It would be a pleasure to have such features as snapping motion paths' endpoints
to the center of an object, to the center of an object group, and to other
motion path's endpoints. This would make it possible to make high quality
animations with Impress.
