You can animate any object, i.e., a block arrow. Play with the "SLIDE SHOW -
CUSTOM ANIMATION" "ADD EFFECT" "MOTION PATHS" features.

You can group several together and move them all at once, or you can move
them independently.

Hope that helps.

Hi

MNotion paths will work great if your "flow" is in a straight line. If the
arrow goes round bends than PPoint lacks the "align to path" feature in eg
flash so the arrow will not be pointing along the path. Its very difficult to
use the emphasis spin to align it correctly!

A workaround is to place arrows all along the pipe , aligned in the correct
direction . Now to the first add a custom animation > entrance >wipe, choose
the direction of wipe from which is most appropriate. Do an "after previous"
entrance wipe for arrow 2 followed by a "with previous" > exit > wipe for
arrow 1. Continue entrances and exits till the last arrow.

Sorry if that sounds complicated!
