    In the windows version of Powerpoint, you can make motion paths, as well as make objects move around. I can't figure out how to do this on Powerpoint for Mac, its very frustrating. :)

    Does anyone know how to do this?

    Did some checking and as of right now the motion path feature apparently does not exist in Office 2008. There was a suggestion I found to download NeoOffice and work with your presentation in there to add motion paths and then bring it back to PowerPoint 08 to do the presentation.

    I hope they put this feature in soon, I like it. :(

    Ok thanks...I did some googling and found that suggestion too....Stupid M$....I think that they're punishing us Mac users for ditching Windows. :(

    No, there is certain code that for some reason won't work on a Mac, like visual basics allowing macro functions in Excel. Might be along those lines. We have to be nice to our Microsoft friends or they won't grant our wishes.... :p :apple:
