PPT animation to follow a line

Jun 01, 2015

I don't think there's a way to do this, but I thought I'd check if you knew of a way.  If I draw a line using a line tool and make it curvy, wiggly, all around the slide.... is there a way to animate it appearing following the line?

I could imagine trying to piece it together in segments and doing each little segment as a wipe, but I'd love to see a "follow the line" animation.  Just hoping upon hope it's possible.  I'm using PowerPoint 2013.  Thanks!

Thanks... I didn't describe it well.  I'm  not looking for a motion path to follow a line.  I'm looking to make a squiggly line animate onto the screen following the line.  So, wipe works on a straight line because you can just make it wipe on in the direction of the line... but if it's a squiggly line, can you animate it onto the screen following the shape of the line?
