(BTW, the help extension on my suite does not work - it just opens up the Write program, but that's another question which I will post separately)

Write into search form: animation - and the index will alter

animation along curve: see attached file

How to:

  1. You've inserted bee and chalcboard
  2. select the bee
  3. Click the green + to add animation
  4. Animation side panel: Category > Motion Paths
  5. Select Category > Motion Paths :: User Paths > Freeform Line
  6. Cursor now appears as cross&path form
  7. Draw your special path: The pass starts with arrow and ends with one > direction of moving the object
  8. Be aware that the user defined path is in light grey, so it is hard to see around a graphic object - move the object for better checking/recognising
  9. For altering the user defined curve: Click Points or F8, do your changes, then move your object back if necessary
  10. Try out, hit F5 key

EDIT Yes, it's not easy to find out the right way for that. Hopefully the off-line help system will be improved resp. there are some books (!) where you will find step by step advice for animations... /EDIT
